Rockets Defeat Vikings

The Rockets faced off against the Winfield Vikings Friday night in Winfield. Online sites had the Vikings favored to win 21-14 before the game.  The Rockets came out strong driving down to the 20 before a fumble turning the ball over.  The defense came out strong and stopped the Vikings drive.  The Rockets, mad about the turnover, drove the ball down to the 49-yard line when Boeden Whitted took a 51-yard run to get the first touchdown with the extra point good by Teagan Cobb.  The Vikings scored in the 2nd quarter but the kick was no good putting the Rockets up 7-6.  The Rockets wanted to finish the half with a touchdown; quarterback Lane Gardner kept the ball for a 3-yard touchdown and the kick was good by Teagan Cobb putting the Rockets up 14-6 at halftime.  The last touchdown was scored by the Vikings in the 3rd quarter; they went for the 2-point conversion but it was no good. No one scored the rest of the game and the Rockets earned the 14-12 victory over the Vikings.  The Rockets will host Independence this Friday on Senior Night.
