Thirteen was the unlucky number for the Westwood football team on Thursday night as they failed in getting their 13th consecutive win falling to Forrest in Chapel Hill. After an early Forrest score, Marcus Pendleton returned a punt 90 yards with 2 minutes remaining in the first quarter to tie the game at 6. The Westwood defense had few answers for the home standing Forrest offense falling behind 22 to 6 in the 2nd quarter. Jake Hollandsworth hooked up with Byron Sullivan on a 65 yard TD pass in the 2nd quarter, but Westwood still trailed 30 to 12 at the half. Coach Chad Dyer’s Rockets got 2 touchdown runs from Sullivan in the second half from 54 yards and 12 yards respectively, and Leo Botello added a late score to trim the final margin the 44 to 30. The Rockets fall to 3 and 1 on the season as they prepare for a pivotal game against Cascade next Thursday at 6:30 at Dyer-Bouldin Field.
