Now 6-1 on the season thanks to a statement win of 63-13 against St. Paul, the Chaminade Eagles look to extend their three game winning streak with a win against Harvard Westlake. However, that is much easier said than done. Harvard Westlake sits on top of the Mission League standings with Chaminade at 2-0 and have exploded on offense the last couple of weeks.
The Wolverines have plenty of talent, but their offense mainly relies on Chad Kanoff, the quarterback. Kanoff, committed to Vanderbilt, has already thrown for 32 touchdowns in 7 games, including 12 touchdowns the past two games alone. Harvard Westlake averages nearly 342 passing yards a game, so Chaminade's cornerbacks better be prepared for some deep passing. In addition, Harvard Westlake's offensive line is one of the better ones the Eagles will face all season. Led by its center, Thomas Oser, who has offers from universities such as Stanford and Oregon, the Harvard Westlake offensive line has made it difficult for defenses to attack Kanoff, thus resulting in touchdown passes. Getting past the o-line is essential if Chaminade wants to win this pivotal game.
The Eagles face the Wolverines this Friday at Harvard Westlake as Chaminade will try to halt the Wolverines six game winning streak and take full command of the Mission League lead.
