Reeths-Puffer quarterback Evan Moskwa had a monster night on Thursday, throwing for 383 yards and six touchdowns to lead the Rockets to a wild 55-34 victory over Orchard View in a non-conference tilt.
R-P’s Daven Fox got things going early by taking the opening kickoff 94 yards for a touchdown. Orchard View answered with a touchdown four minutes into the second quarter and missed the extra point, leaving the Rockets with a slim 7-6 lead.
Then Moskwa got hot, throwing three touchdown passes in the second quarter, to Carter Fulton (17 yards), Fox (15 yards) and another to Fulton (30 yards). Reeths-Puffer led 28-6 at halftime.
The second half was pretty even, with OV outscoring the Rockets 28-27. But Moskwa and his receivers continued to do their damage.
Moskwa threw TD passes of 10 and 12 yards to Fox in the third quarter, and 40 yards to Fulton in the fourth. The quarterback also scored on a one-yard run earlier in the fourth quarter.
Fulton finished with 10 catches for 253 yards and three touchdowns. Fox caught five passes for 87 yards and three touchdowns. Brett Buchan rushed for 77 yards for Reeths-Puffer while Thad Radosa led the defense with four tackles.
Orchard View quarterback Owen Swanson completed 14 of 25 passes for 183 yards and three touchdowns. Devin Doss had four catches for 57 yards.
Reeths-Puffer, now 1-1, will host Mona Shores next Friday. Orchard View, 0-2, will host Muskegon Catholic.
