WESTFORD — Westford’s own Ghosts dominated players from Lowell High, 22-0, on Saturday, during the Academy’s home opener.

The game, originally scheduled for Friday night, was delayed following a power outage at Westford Academy from an afternoon thunderstorm.

Ghost quarterback Jake Cullen scored the first touchdown in the opening quarter, with Ryan Kyle adding the extra point with four seconds left on the clock in the quarter.

Alex Wilson scored his first, and the Ghost’s second touchdown of the night in the second quarter. Jake Cullen secured a two-point conversion run, giving the Ghosts a 15-0 edge at the end of the second quarter.

The Ghosts 15-0 lead stood through the third quarter, until Wilson scored an 89 yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, marking his second touchdown of the night. Kyle once again secured the extra point, marking the final point of the night.
