    Westfield’s offense takes flight?

    Compared it to the description "Westfield's offense had it all going in Friday's big win", I guess that "Westfield’s offense takes flight" means "Westfield’s offense goes very well."

    Am I on the right track?

    Westfield’s offense takes flight in a senior night blowout of No. 14 Centreville


    By Jacob Bogage October 21

    Westfield's offense had it all going in Friday's big win at home against Centreville in Chantilly. (Jacob Bogage/The Washington Post)
    That wasn’t supposed to happen. These are two of Fairfax County’s best football teams, Centreville and Westfield. They play a rivalry that dates back two decades to Chantilly’s suburban boom. Their yearly meetings are the stuff of high school football legend.

    You are: they both mean that the opposition had no answer to the Westfield offense.

    Sorry. I have had difficulty to understand you.

    Would any one like to rewrite "Westfield’s offense takes flight in a senior night blowout of No. 14 Centreville" so that I can understand it?

    Westfield's attack was so good that the other team had nothing in response.

    Flight-running away - the rival's running away -Centreville's running away and Westfield takes their flight as his prize?

    No- they thrashed the other team. They played much better than them. The other team did not run away- they simply lost when up against a much better team.
