Rockets Beat Indians at Buzzer

On Tuesday the Rockets traveled to Andale, sitting at 9-9 and looking to get back on track after losing five straight. It would be no easy task as Andale was the number five team in 4A. The Rockets came out early and competed as they only trailed by five going into the second quarter, and would also go into halftime trailing by five. In the second half the Indians would hold a steady lead of around five points for most of the half. In the fourth quarter the Rockets started to creep back into it. They eventually tied the game up and sent it into overtime. The Indians had a 1-point lead with 1.2 seconds remaining as the Rockets were inbounding. Trent Barnhart fired a pass to Koby Campbell in the corner who hit a three as time expired to give the Rockets a win over the Indians. The Rockets are now 10-9 with one game left in the regular season against Mulvane on Thursday.

Lady Rockets Fall to Indians

The Lady Rockets were coming off of a win against Collegiate and wanted to carry that into their Tuesday matchup against Andale. The Rockets came out strong in the first period and only trailed the Indians by three points going into the second quarter. However, the Indians started to pull a bit ahead in the second quarter and the Rockets went into halftime trailing by nine. The score from that point was pretty steady as it would hover between 8-12 points for the remainder of the game. The Rockets would eventually fall to the Indians 41-31. They are now 8-11 on the year as they have one more game left in the regular season against rival Mulvane on Thursday.
