    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.

    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.
