WEST MILFORD – The West Milford High School girls softball team lost to Passaic Valley on Tuesday, by a final score of 8-5.

That makes it three consecutive losses after the team’s two wins to start the season.

In Tuesday’s loss, the Lady Highlanders couldn’t overcome a big second inning from the Hornets in which the team scored four runs.

Jessica Reilly and Alexa Aiello each went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in the losing effort.

Outfielder Natalie Marzalik also had a run and an RBI for West Milford, going 1-for-4 in the game.

Going into Tuesday’s contest, the Highlanders were coming off of another loss to Pequannock.

In that game, West Milford had a 3-2 lead through three innings only to allow six runs in the fourth.

The Highlanders were never able to recover, losing 10-6.

That defeat came after a loss to Indian Hills in a game in which the Highlanders were held scoreless, losing by a final score of 8-0.

The three losses followed two big wins to start the season, the first over Wayne Hills, a team West Milford beat handily by a final score of 10-0.
