Bombers drop 25

WESTFIELD – After a cool start to the season – the Westfield High School softball team opened the season 0-3 – the Bombers heated up Tuesday in a big, big way.
Westfield pitcher Haley Moniz shut down the opposition on the mound, and the Bombers offensive exploded for 25 runs in a 25-1 rout of visiting Amherst.
“It was finally nice to see the team come together and play well for an entire game,” Westfield coach Tim Desmond said. “We have had one bad inning in our first two games, which ended up costing us big. Today we finally put it all together and it felt good to earn our first win.”
