BOWERSTON – Effort was not a factor for the young Rockets Friday night as they battled hard for four quarters. Buckeye Trail was able to capitalize on the mistakes made by the young group of Rockets and jump out to a 20-8 lead after one quarter of play. Trail stayed consistent in the second quarter as they pounded the boards opening up a 45-17 lead at the half.
The Rockets continued to fight in the 2nd half, but were unable to come back. The final after four quarters was 88-46, bringing CV to 0-2 and Buckeye Trail to 1-1. Garson Imes led the Rockets in scoring with 23 points. Brett Putnam and Gaige Galigher both added 8 points.
The Rockets face East Canton Tuesday night at home. JV action starts at 6:00 PM.
