Bond and Merritt Honored as Fox 2 Athletes of the Week

posted Nov 9, 2013, 4:20 PM by Cory Snyder   [ updated Nov 11, 2013, 4:16 AM ]

Brett Bond and Trey Merritt were selected as Fox 2's Athletes of the Week following the team's win over Sullivan last Wednesday.  Trey carried the ball 46 times for 300 yards and a touchdown while Brett combined 91 yards rushing with 147 yards receiving and 3 total touchdowns.  Both guys would be the first to tell you that they are the individual recipients of the award but it is the team's effort and performance that is recognized.  It takes a whole team playing well in order for talented individuals to shine.

The Wildcats beat Borgia in the first round of district play by a score of 46-6.  Then in the second round, the team traveled to Sullivan for a rematch of last year's second round game and this time came away victorious by a score of 37-21.  They are now set to square off with Ladue, the #1 seed, in the district championship game on Monday night at 7:00 pm at SLU High.

Through the first two playoff games, the offense has set a number of new school records.  Against Borgia, the offense set a school record of 400 yards rushing.  Brett Bond ran for 162 yards and Trey Merritt for 173.  Caleb Miller tacked on 65 yards.  The next week against Sullivan, Trey Merritt shattered the single game rushing records by carrying the ball a record 46 times for a record 300 yards.  Brett Bond tacked on an additional 91 yards rushing in the game and accounted for 147 yards receiving.

17-10 Loss to Duchesne Wraps Up Regular Season

posted Oct 27, 2013, 6:07 AM by Cory Snyder

The Wildcats lost their Senior Day Game on Saturday to Duchesne by a score of 17-10.  The Cats looked poised to take a 7-0, or even larger, lead into halftime but a tipped pass returned for a touchdown with less than a minute left in the half and a fumble on the ensuing possession allowed Duchesne to have the halftime lead, 10-7.  Duchesne was able to push the lead to 17-7 early in the fourth quarter before Westminster could answer with a field goal late.  After an unsuccessful onside kick attempt, the defense was able to stop Duchesne on fourth down to get the ball back with less than a minute to play.  A frantic scramble that included two shots to score from the 19 yard line came up short and time expired with the score at 17-10.

Although the Wildcat running attack struggled throughout the game, Trey Merritt was able to break Dominick Valli's 2007 school rushing record and now has 929 yards rushing on the season.  He also tied Sam Jura's 2005 record of 12 rushing touchdowns in a season with his score early in the game. 

The Cats finished as the third ranked team in their district and will have a rematch with Borgia this Thursday night at 7:00.  The game will be played at Parkway North.

Team Rushing Record Broken in Win Over DuBourg

posted Oct 19, 2013, 3:45 PM by Cory Snyder

The Team Rushing Record of 310 yards set in 2009 against DuBourg was broken with a 313 yard effort against DuBourg in a 45-7 win.  Trey Merritt paced the rushing attack with 195 yards and 3 touchdowns in a little more than a quarter.  Brett Bond made a spectacular one-handed catch and run on a 60 yard touchdown pass from Brendan Bognar in the second quarter which was followed by a David Williams chip shot field goal.  Blake Sutphen rounded out a 38-0 halftime lead with a 70 yard interception return for a touchdown.

Caleb Miller assumed the rushing responsibilities in the second half and ran for 73 yards and a score.  Most of his yardage came on a drive that started with about four minutes remaining in the third quarter and ended with only about 3:00 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Wildcats conclude the regular season this Saturday with a home contest against 7-1 Duchesne.

Westminster Beats Borgia in Carnival Game

posted Oct 13, 2013, 9:52 AM by Cory Snyder   [ updated Oct 13, 2013, 9:53 AM ]

Westminster knocked off Borgia by a score of 35-20 to celebrate the annual Carnival Game.  The Wildcats got on the board early with a 1 yard sneak by Brett Bond.  Borgia stormed right back with two big pass plays to tie the score at 7-7.

Trey Merritt, who had 18 carries for 133 yards, scored on a 3 yard run early in the 2nd quarter.  Brendan Bognar then hit Brennan Hehner for a 20 yard score to put WCA up 21-7 at the half.

The second half opened with a Wildcat punt on the first series followed by a Borgia offensive drive that led to a touchdown.  Leading 21-14, Brett Bond found Demetris Williams on a post route for a long gain that led to a Bond to Williams 23 yard touchdown pass early in the 4th.  Trey Merritt capped off Wildcat scoring with a 27 yard touchdown run.

The Wildcat defense intercepted three Borgia passes and made a big stop in the third quarter after Borgia cut the lead to 21-14 and forced a punt on the next WCA offensive series.  Blake Sutphen and Bradley Almus each collected their first career interceptions and Trey Merritt added his second on the season.  Sam Snapp added to the defensive effort with six tackles, two for a loss, and two pass break ups.

The Wildcats travel to Bishop DuBourg this Friday night for a 7:00 pm kickoff.
