Rockets fire past HG in CLC matchup

HOWARDS GROVE – Junior running back Aaron Chier ran for two touchdowns and had a TD reception to fuel the Cedar Grove- Belgium Rockets’ 40-0 drubbing of Howards Grove here Friday night.

The game was the Central Lakeshore Conference football opener for the Tigers who fell to 0-5 overall. The defending CLC champion Rockets, who led 40-0 at halftime, improved to 2-0 in the league (4-1 overall).

Chier had TD dashes of 16 and 11 yards along with a 75-yard score from senior quarterback Drew Emperley. Chier finished the night with a game-high 110 yards rushing on only 11 carries (10- yard average per attempt).

Emperley also tossed an 8-yard TD pass to senior wide receiver Logan Peterson.

The Tigers were stymied on the ground with only 2 yards on 18 attempts. Senior quarterback Austin Edge threw for 167 yards and his top receiver was junior split end Zach Fritz who caught three passes for 39 yards.

Fritz, who also plays defensive back, had an interception.

“We had another rough day,” said Tiger head coach David Schmid. “We started out slow by throwing an interception for a TD on the first drive, then failing to recover a squib kick on the ensuing kickoff [which led to a TD]. It took us a while to bounce back from that.

“We played much better as a team, both offensively and defensively, in the second half. We need to build some momentum this week for Oostburg next Friday,” said Schmid.

“Our players have been working real hard in practice and it will be real exciting to see them put it all together.”
