The Okawville JV Rockets returned to action December 20 when they defeated the visiting Steeleville Warriors in a hard fought 49-41 victory.
Playing their first game in a week after missing the previously scheduled contest due to snow, the Rockets came out chilly on the offensive end. Okawville managed just 19 first half points, but fortunately they put forth a strong effort on the defensive end and managed to take 19-15 halftime lead.
Schmersahl, Brock Fuhrhop, and Ethan Riechmann would put the game away down the stretch at the free throw line as the Rockets held on for 49-41 victory.
The JV Rockets will return to action January 7 when they travel to Roxana.
