WESTERLY — The ball didn't bounce Westerly High's way for the second straight match.

The Bulldogs lost by a point for the second time in three days on Wednesday, dropping a 4-3 Division II girls tennis decision to Portsmouth at Rotary Park.

Westerly had to earn its three points, too.

In singles, No. 2 Kaleigh Passell won 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5), and two doubles victories went to three sets: Maggie Stahl and Claire Manfredi prevailed at No. 1, 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, and Maggie Scanapieco and Addison Serra won at No. 3, 1-6, 6-4, 10-8.

Westerly lost at Ponaganset on Monday, 4-3.

Westerly (4-5, 4-5 Division II) next plays at Prout on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. before hosting Rogers on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
