The Newman Comets came out absolutely on fire against the Fulton Steamers with 426 rushing yards. The Comets were able to consistently gash the Steamers defense with big plays. The main contributor on offense was Connor McBride who carried the ball 13 times for 200 yards and three touchdowns. Mcbride had touchdown runs of 70,69, and 6 yards. Also, near the end of the third quarter McBride provided another big play with a 80 yard kick-off return touchdown. Quarterback Brycen Bartel took a quarterback keeper 69 yards for a touchdown on his only run of the game and fullback Luke Olsen carried the ball eight times for 97 yards and two touchdowns. Out of Olsen's 97 rushing yards, 56 yards came on a long touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

The Rockets were able to break their seven game losing streak as they beat up the Trojans. The Rockets changed things up this week and relied on their running game producing over 350 yards on the ground. The Rock Falls defense swarmed to the ball and caused a lot of negative plays.

The Rockets will have another opportunity to grab another win this Friday as they take on Rockford Lutheran this Friday.
