Zach Theriault threw a nine-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Rivera for West's first score (making the game 7-7 in the first quarter. A Killian Bullock fumble recovery for a touchdown accounted for West's (0-1) other score.
Alvirne crossed midfield in the closing minutes and the Owls held on downs to secure the win.

Isaiah Prince, Monadnock’s first-year quarterback, was immense. He ran for three touchdowns and ran for another.
Monadnock is a Division III team by enrollment, but was placed in Division II.
"We have some talent coming back," Monadnock coach Linwood Patnode said before the season began.
"I’m not going to underplay our team," Patnode said. "The schedule is what it is. We don’t have it in our heads that we’re a Division III school playing in Division II."
