3. WESTBROOK (6-0): The Blue Blazes were also tested on the road, but came back for a 41-38 victory over Windham. Big men Nich Jobin and Dominic Borelli combined for 27 of Westbrook’s points.

It will certainly have a chance to prove itself in the next two games. (AJ) EDITOR'S NOTE: Westbrook improved to 7-0 after Monday night's win against Sanford.
