    The Rockets quickly jumped out to a 28-12 lead at the half, and never allowed Fairdale to reach the end zone again.

    Senior fullback Caleb Morehead led a Rockets’ rushing attack that gained 404 yards on the ground in the win.

    And while the offense lit up the scoreboard, head coach Jerry Lucas said he saw his defense shine as well.
