Lady Rockets rebound for win; Rockets fall

There was no hangover for the Westwood Lady Rockets after their first loss of the season.

The Lady Rockets hit the court with a vengeance and Thurman Francis was on the wrong end Thursday, as the Lady Rockets cruised to a 51-6 win at Joel Vinson Gymnasium (a game you heard live on Thunder Radio).

Westwood was paced by seventh grader Jules Ferrell, who racked up 25 points on the night. Reece Finch pitched in 9 and Audri Patton 8.
