Westwood Patriot Girls Basketball on the road to the Gladstone Braves this evening.
It was an exciting day for the Upper Peninsula today starting off with the visit of President Barack Obama to Marquette, and it continued into the night for the JV game played tonight prior to the Varsity game this evening. The JV game went into 8 overtimes, with a final score of 86-83 Westwood winning. Causing the varsity game to start almost 2 hours after it’s scheduled start time.
When the varsity teams finally took to the court it was a slow moving game to start with the teams trying to get the pregame motivation back that was put on hold due to the late start.
The 1st quarter ended with the Westwood Patriots on top of the Braves with a score of 7-6. The game remained close still by the end of the 2nd, with a score of 14-13 with the Patriots retaining the lead going into the half.

Tune in to 103.3 The Country Extreme next week February 15th when the Westwood Patriot Girls basketball team takes on the Manistique Emeralds at home.
