The Rockets used a 17-0 run between the first and second quarters to win their home opener over Spring Lake.

Reeths-Puffer’s run began in the first quarter while it was down 4-2 early. The early deficit sparked the Rockets to a 13-4 advantage after the first quarter. 

Reeths-Puffer did not let off the gas pedal in the second quarter, taking a 24-10 lead into halftime. The third quarter was more Rockets as the talented squad dropped in 21 points and extended its lead to 45-18.

The offensive dynamic duo of Ariel Walker and Sophia Hekkema led the Rockets. Walker finished with 18 points and three rebounds while Hekkema scored 16 points on an efficient 6 of 8 shooting from the floor and recorded seven rebounds. Brooklyn Tornes added 11 points of her own in the offensive explosion for the Rockets.
