The visiting Patriots scored in the 1st minute as the Rockets turned the ball over deep in their defensive end.  Liberty’s defense fended off 11 first half shots to hold a 1 nil lead at the half.  In the 2nd half, Westwood got a goal from Izick Sierra in the 37th minute to level the score at 1.  Nico Sanfilippo had the assist on the Sierra goal to set in motion a physical and frantic final 23 minutes.  Junior Petatan notched the game winner in the 50th minute off an assist from Sierra to lift the Rockets to 4 and 0 on the year.  Westwood outshot Liberty 24 to 4 in the match as Westwood held the advantage in time of possession.  Westwood also had 8 corner kicks to none for the Patriots.   Rockets keeper Elijah McCoy finished with 3 saves between the pipes.
