Roberts in comeback win
The Fromberg Falcons hosted the Roberts Rockets on Saturday night, and the Falcons would get to a very quick start. The Falcons played a very aggressive 2-3 defense, creating turnovers and many fast-break opportunities. Looking to push the ball down the court every chance they got, the Falcons were able to get out to a quick 17-5.
The Rockets played much more efficiently in the 2nd quarter, cutting down on turnovers they were able to slowly chip into the Falcons lead, but the fast paced Falcons went into the locker room feeling good about a 30-21 lead.
The 3rd quarter felt like much of the same story, led by Rye Kern who had 20 points on the night, the Falcons would go into the 4th quarter giving everybody the feeling that the game was won.
However, in the 4th quarter, the Rockets shocked everyone, showing why you play all four quarters. Trevor Krook and Stephen Shouse paced the Rockets offense with 18 and 12 points apiece, but the key to the Rockets comeback was finding an answer for the Falcons fast-break, nearly silencing their offense all together.
The Rockets went on a 26-9 run in the final quarter, stunning the Falcons by the score of 58-55.
