CHICOPEE – The Westfield High School girls basketball team has hit a road block in its quest for the postseason.
Westfield lost its fourth straight game, falling one game below .500 at 6-7 with a 55-49 loss to Chicopee Comp on the road Thursday night.
“It was a tough loss, but the girls played hard and created many turnovers,” Westfield High School girls basketball head coach Cyndi Fillion said. “(The) cards just didn’t fall our way at the end.”
Westfield produced three double-digit scorers – Chandler Pedolzky (16 points), Kaela Mochak (16), and Olivia Hadla (13).
Westfield will seek to end their recent slide on Monday when the Bombers travel to East Longmeadow to take on the Spartans. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.
