The game, played under wet and rainy conditions, was a defensive struggle from start to finish. Both schools traded early touchdowns in the first quarter then Westfield, led by Scoville, added a field goal right before the half to make the score 10-7 at Halftime. In the second half, Chantilly scored early and took a 14-10 lead and held that lead until late Fourth Quarter. Like so many Series games, this one lived up to its reputation with both schools battling to the very end of the game. But with a late fumble recovery and a resulting touchdown with 3:50 left in the game, Westfield High School and Coach Verbanic's Chargers pulled off another close victory 17-14. A late field goal attempt by Chantilly to tie the score failed and with the turnover in downs, Westfield sealed Chantilly's fate and the victory for Westfield and Coach Tom Verbanic.
