The Rockridge Rockets extended their stay in the Macomb-Western
Holiday Tournament, taking a 45-29 decision over the Eureka
Hornets to begin consolation bracket play Friday morning.
The Rockets (2-9) held Eureka (3-7) to 29
percent shooting (11-for-38) for the game, including an icy
1-for-15 effort from three-point territory. The second quarter
had a slow start as five points total were scored for almost six
minutes. Rockridge finally got in gear late to grab an 18-11
lead at intermission.
Eureka appeared to have the momentum
to begin play in the 2nd
half as baskets from Alex Brittain and Keegan Zimmerman pulled
Eureka to within 18-15.
The two junior frontcourt players seemed
determined to keep the Hornets close. They combined for 11
points in the third quarter and Eureka was only behind 29-24
with 2:30 remaining. That is when Rockridge took control,
launching a 16-3 run to put the game out of reach.
Riley Fetterer keyed the Rockets attack,
assisting on seven baskets, and scoring six points himself. Cody
Bush and Dalton Wolf led the Rockets, who used only five players
in the first half, in scoring with 12 points each.
Zimmerman and Brittain led Eureka with
nine points. Brittain also grabbed a game-high nine rebounds.
Rockridge will once again play at 9:00 am in their next game,
coming Saturday morning versus the winner of Jacksonville and
