Tuesday night the Rockies of Lincoln defeated the visitors from Wawasee by a score of 8-6. The first half saw the Rockies losing the field position battle, but only surrendering 6 points after being faced with a short field. In the second half the Rockie defense again stood tall and the offense put two sustained drives together with the second drive resulting in a score with a little over three minutes left. Kaden McCrammer ran over and through the Wawasee defense on his way to the 19 yard score. The extra point try was missed setting up a thrilling ending. The kick-off sailed deep and the visitors were starting from their own 21 yard line. After 2 sacks and a penalty, Jarred Hurford broke through the line and drilled the opposing quarterback in the end zone for a saftey. He was assisted by John Shenk and a host of other defenders. After an onside free kick, Luke Houin led the team through the victory formation and the Rockies raised their record to 3-2. The 7th grade Rockies continue their season Thursday night at Wawasee.
