1A Football: Rockets attack ship against Fort Vancouver | Soccer
Equally impressive was the Rockets’ defense. They limited the Trappers to just 35 yards of total offense and gave up less than a yard per play on average.
In contrast, the Rockets gained 468 yards on offense – 227 in the air and 241 on the ground – to pass the Trappers by more than 400 yards.
Rusher finished the night with seven carries for 144 yards and two scores. Landon Gardner was the Rockets’ main receiver with two catches for 80 yards and one touchdown.
In defense, Ethan Inman led the rockets with 4.5 total tackles and “flew downhill, hitting the linebacker hard.”
Adam Partridge was a game-time decision after sustaining a rib injury against Montesano last week. But he adapted and had an impact on defense and special teams.
âHe ended up trying, was cleared and he did well,â Gehring said. “He blocked a punt in the game and got his hands on another punt where it gave us a great position on the field throughout the game.”
The Rockets were able to ease the gas in the second half, leading 48-0 at the break, but they finished strong with a younger squad.
âWe got everyone spinning and got a lot of playing time for the younger kids throughout the second half,â Gehring said.
