Rockets rush past Tigers in CLC matchup

CEDAR GROVE – Senior Aaron Chier ran for 174 yards and junior Taylor Heiden scored three touchdowns to spark the Cedar Grove-Belgium Rockets to a 52- 15 rout over Howards Grove here Friday night.

The Rockets upped their Central Lakeshore Conference football record to 2-0 (5-1 overall). Cedar Grove is the defending CLC champion. The Tigers fell to 1-1 in the league (2-3 overall).

Chier, a 150-pound running back, had 27 carries (6.4-yard average per attempt) and contributed a 2-yard rushing TD.

Heiden, a 165-pound running back, had TD runs of 7 and 15 yards in the first half and a 2-yarder in the second. He finished the night with 91 yards rushing on 16 attempts.

Cedar Grove blew out to a 28-0 halftime lead, keyed by a 21-point second quarter.

Junior running back Brad Olson scored the Tigers’ first TD on a 44- yard dash in the third period which made it 34-7. Howards’ other TD was on a 6-yard pass from quarterback Luke Stanczyk to tight end Jonah Gerber in the fourth quarter.

The Rockets piled up 300 yards on the ground and HGHS was limited to only 46. The Tigers had only 110 yards in total offense.

“The Tigers ran into a tough Cedar Grove team. We played with two new offensive lineman after injuries the week before. Drew Akright filled in for Zach Mock at center and Alex Navis played in place of Trent Benninghaus,” said Tiger head coach David Schmid.

“While the run game was tough to get going, the Tigers passed the balled better than the last two weeks. The team as a whole played hard, short-handed, and stuck with it to the end.

“We have some room for improvement and some areas that we need to clean up,” said Schmid.
