The Westwood Middle School softball team welcomed Moore County to Lady Rocket Field on Friday for a makeup contest from Monday.  The Lady Rockets made a valiant comeback effort before falling in the conference matchup.  Westwood lost by a final score of 7 to 6.

With Moore County leading 3 to 1 entering the 6th inning, the visiting Lynchburg ladies erupted for 4 runs to stun the Lady Rockets.  Westwood responded with 5 runs of their own in the bottom of the 6th inning to cut the deficit to 1 run.  In the 7th, the Rockets could not get a runner in scoring position as they dropped just their 2nd loss of the year in conference play.  Emma Kidder led the Rockets in hitting with a double and 2 singles.  Paisley Campbell had a double and 2 RBI.

The Lady Rockets will have a rematch with Moore County on Wednesday in Lynchburg.  First pitch is set for 4 PM.
