LUDLOW – Home or away. Back-to-back games on consecutive nights. None of it matters to the Westfield High School girls’ basketball team.
Westfield continued its brief winning streak, escaping “The Jungle” in Ludlow against the Lions with a 51-46 victory.

“I’m really proud of the kids effort,” Loos said. “They toughed it out in a close game.”
