Rockets on Fire
by Koby Campbell
Riding the wave of a four game winning streak, on Tuesday the Rocket soccer team went on the road to El Dorado looking for their fifth straight win. They sat at 7-5-1 going into the matchup. The Rockets got the scoring going quickly as Drew Leck would strike first in the game with a goal off of an assist from Caden Dinkel in the ninth minute to take a quick 1-0 lead. The Rockets would score three more times in the half off of a goal from Zach Hoang and two goals from Caden Dinkel. The Rockets would shutout the Wildcats in the first half to go into halftime with a 4-0 lead. Zach Hoang would start the second half with a goal in only the 43rd minute. Goals from Teagan Cobb and Trystan Spiess would only expand the Rocket lead. In the end the Rockets would shutout the Wildcats and win by a dominant score of 7-0 to get their fifth straight win and improve to 8-5-1 on the season. Their next game is Thursday at home against a Maize South team that is undefeated this year.
