Kasen Holt of Lady Rocket basketball

The Westwood Rockets welcomed Middle Tennessee Christian School to the Joel Vinson Gym on Thursday night for a conference doubleheader.  In a pair of games you heard here on Thunder Radio, the Lady Rockets used a big 2nd quarter to get a 37 to 16 win.  The Rockets saw the visiting Cougars build a large halftime cushion as they fell 42 to 32.

The Lady Rockets used a trio of 3 pointers in the 2nd quarter to turn a tie game into an 11 point halftime lead.  Kasen Holt led the Lady Rockets in scoring with 11 points, including a pair of 3 pointers.  Elizabeth Brown added 10 points with a pair of 3 pointers.

Scoring only 4 points in the 2nd quarter, Westwood saw Middle Tennessee Christian stretch their first quarter lead from 2 points to 9 at the half.  A 4th quarter rally fell short as the Rockets record fell to 4 and 3 on the year.  Will Partin led the Rockets in scoring with 12 points.  Trent Thompson added 10 points and John Dobson added 6 points.

Westwood travels to Unionville on Monday to take on Community.  The girls’ game will tip off at 6 PM.
