Roundup: Westford holds off Billerica

Westford Academy girls’ basketball coach Russ Coward knew that there was no such thing as a comfortable lead against Billerica. So his team was prepared when the Indians made their second-half push, and his Grey Ghosts, powered by Samantha Hyslip (20 points, 18 rebounds) were able to hold on for a 53-49 win on Thursday night at Whittier Tech in Haverhill.

The third-seeded Grey Ghosts (20-4) advanced to the Division 1 North final Saturday and a game with Central Catholic at Tsongas Center.
