Rockets Ready For Championship
Last Friday, the Rocket Football team faced off against the Mulvane Wildcats at home for their first round of the playoff championship. With the Rockets on a 5-winning streak, their hopes for the game were high. Kicking off the first quarter was Rose Hill, scoring first against Mulvane. A 13-yard pass from QB Bryson Evans to Kale Kochick gave the Rockets a 6-0 lead. Holding a strong defense, the Rockets secured the first quarter. As the second quarter began, the Rocket boys were determined to increase the distance in scores. Scoring the 2nd touchdown was Evans with yet another pass, this time to Trevor Kiser. With the 2-point conversion successful, the Rockets were ahead 14-0. Less than 2 minutes left in the quarter, Senior Spencer Nolan scored with a 7-yard run to bring the score to 22-0 Rockets. Mulvane tried their best to come back, but neither team scored in the third quarter. However, the Rockets would score their 3rd in a row with a 40 yard pass to Junior Chase Green. Before the game would end, Mulvane would score two touchdowns. Not enough to take back the lead, the Rockets were victorious at the conclusion of the game. A 30-13 victory for Rose Hill sends them to round two which will be hosted at home. This Friday against Buhler, the Rocket boys will fight for the Regional Championship.
