Westover defeated Monroe 5-2 out at Paul Eames Park Tuesday evening.
A 2-run 6th inning pushed the Patriots lead to 5-0, and the Tornadoes could never recover.
Westover head coach Jordan Cambron knows just how important this win was for the team's playoff hopes.
"We lost this, we're out of the playoff run," admitted Cambron. "We needed this to get us back on a roll again and keep us moving forward with our goals for the year."
The Patriots play at Americus-Sumter Wednesday afternoon, and Monroe plays at Bainbridge on Friday.
