A year ago it was regarded among the biggest upsets in Section 1 lacrosse history. But on Thursday, Westlake’s playoff win over Bronxville had almost a familiar feel to it.
The Wildcats dug out of an early hole and ran away for a convincing 18-10 victory in a Section 1 Class D semifinal played at Byram Hills High School, landing the defending champs and state finalists back in the title game.
