Westwood’s Rockets and Lady Rockets basketball teams each suffered tough losses to Eagleville on Tuesday night – both in very different ways.
On the girls side, the Lady Rockets simply couldn’t get into any rhythm and fell 45-15. Jules Ferrell finished the night with 6 points, Audri Patton 5 and Rylee Clark added 4. Even the JV Lady Rockets fell on hard times, losing by 1 in overtime.
Meanwhile, while the boys were able to keep the score close, the Rockets came on the losing end of a 38-33 decision to the Eagles.
The Rockets rallied in the fourth quarter and outscored the Eagles 13-8 but ran out of time to complete the comeback.
Westwood was led in points by Jaden Carter with 10. Caiden Warren added 7, Blake Hillis 6, Lane Fann 3, Jaiden Warren 2 and Skylar Stinson 2.
