From The Old Garnet:
Prowling into Class B from Class C for the 2007 season the WESTLAKE WILCATS clawed their way past # 3 seed Putnam Valley and are the Garnets’ Section One Class B semi-final opponocat.
A fixture on Rye’s schedule in the 1990s when both squads were in Class C and before that when both schools were charter members of the Central Westchester League (CWL), the Blue and White slink into Nugent Stadium poised to pounce an upset.
In the last playoff spat between Rye and Westlake, a 1998 Class C bowl game, the Wildcats mauled Rye 35-13. In the eight contests since 1992 the Garnets have collared the Cats by a margin of 7-1, and Rye leads this struggle for litter box superiority 15-3-2 (.833%). These felines can hiss and scratch attempting to mark Nugent Stadium with a Wildcat “W”, but it is Rye who triumphs sending Westlake skulking back to its Mount Pleasant liar.
With rain, the great equalizer, forecast for this tilt, the Garnets struggle early but emerge as the Cool Cat in a 28-7 taming of these tabbies.
