Westover holds of Monroe rally, 17-14

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

In the second half, Monroe responded with a long drive capped off by a Devontay Stephens touchdown run that made it 14-7.  Westover kicked a 43 yard field goal in the 4th quarter to make the score 17-7. Monroe would pull within 3 but that's as close as they would get.
