FOOTBALL SEMI STATE Merrillville vs. Westfield 2020
Published: November 21, 2020
Take a look at our photos from the Merrillville High School VS Westfield High School semi-state football game!
The Merrillville Pirates’ fell to the Westfield Shamrocks 41-23
in Friday’s Semi-State matchup.
The Pirates took a lead early, but struggled to find a rhythm in
their offense – and following key turnovers, the Shamrocks were able to build a
sizeable lead. Though their season ends tonight, Head Coach Brad Seiss noted
how proud he was of his team’s accomplishments this year.
“We’ve played well on the field but I’m just as proud of the
team for how they’ve managed at home, in the locker room, training room and
everywhere else,” he said. “As we’ve navigated through a season of COVID era
football, the kids should be proud of themselves for the way they’ve handled
their social lives. Our record might be 10-2 but really each week we feel like
we’re undefeated because we have been able to play each week and there aren’t
many schools that can say that.”
Congratulations to the Pirates on a safe, remarkable season.
