AVON — Halloween weekend is the time to pretend to be someone or something you’re not. Friday night Avon’s Ethan Holbrook put on his pads and helmet and pretended to be Jerry Rice.

Holbrook, a senior wide receiver, had four first-half touchdowns and caught five passes for 202 yards as the Eagles routed Westlake 49-0 in a Division II, Region 6 opening-round game at Mark Walhberg Chevrolet Stadium.

Holbrook, who came into the game leading the area with 757 yards receiving, had first-quarter touchdown catches of 29 and 25 yards as the top-seeded Eagles took an early 21-0.

No. 16 seed Westlake (5-6) had its best drive to open the second quarter, marching down to the Eagles’ 10 before Nolan Good intercepted a Sam Brucchieri pass to keep the Demons off the scoreboard.

On the following play, Holbrook caught a pass from quarterback Sam DeTillio in front of the Eagles bench and maneuvered down the sideline, breaking four tackles along the way to a 90-yard touchdown that made the score 28-0.
