Varsity 42-35 over Indy Carmel

Again the varsity football team found itself ahead by two touchdowns in the fourth quarter against a talented football team. The Rocks secured the victory with clutch plays down the stretch in knocking off Carmel of Indianapolis 42-35.

Solid defense kept the Greyhounds at bay the entire first half, allowing only one drive for a touchdown.

After leading at halftime 14-7 for the second straight week, the Rocks allowed Carmel to stay in the game due to some missed opportunities. But the offense came up with huge drives, including a 4th-and-6 conversion for a 31-yard touchdown pass that proved to be the game winner.

The Rocks take on another Indianapolis team tonight against Lawrence Central.
