To celebrate homecoming, the Rockets hosted the Norton Panthers and treated them to their most complete football game of the season. After giving ups some ground on the initial Norton drive the Rockets held, making them turn the ball over on downs, then scored on their first play from scrimmage with an 82 yard run for Krys Riley-Richardson. From that point, the Rockets took total control of the game ending the first quarter with a 21-0 lead, extending it 34-0 to end the first half.
The Rockets defense shut down the Panthers offense , securing the shutout while the offense scored 44 points. Krys Riley-Richardson ran for 192 of the Rockets 472 rushing yards and four of their six touchdowns, which moves them to 6-0 on the season and 3-0 in the Portage Trail Conference Metro League.
The Rockets take on the Coventry Comets this Friday @ Coventry.
