ALTO — It looked like Alto was on its way to a season opening blow out at halftime, but Palestine Westwood had other ideas.
The Yellowjackets managed to hold on late to stop the upset-minded Panthers 28-20 on Friday evening at Cam'Ron Matthews Field at Yellowjacket Stadium.
Alto led 22-7 at the break, but the Panthers made a game of it in the final half.
It has now been 46 years since Westwood last beat Alto.
Alto will travel to Timpson (0-1) on Friday.
