Rocket teammates celebrate with Granger after his winning shot

The New Rockford-Sheyenne Rockets know how to start their season with a bang! For the first time in several years, the Rockets boys basketball team defeated the Carrington Cardinals in a thriller on Monday, Dec. 10 at home. Senior Parker Granger drained a three-pointer in the final seconds to overcome a one-point deficit and give the Rockets their first tick in the "W" column.

It was a close, hard fought game all the way as New Rockford-Sheyenne (NR-S) defeated Carrington, by a final score of 64-62, in non-region boys basketball action played here before a good crowd on Monday, Dec. 10.

The Rockets are playing without Tucker Longnecker due to injury, and the Cardinals were without Trey Rosenau who is out for the season with an injury. Tyler Cook is again head coach for the Rockets and is assisted by Elliott Belquist. Chance LaBrie and Brett Allmaras will coach the Junior High.

The Rockets should be one of the top teams in District 7 along with Four Winds-Minnewaukan. Langdon and Dunseth should be strong in District 8.

Parker Granger, who transferred here from Harvey-Wells County, paced the Rockets with 15 points, including what turned out to be the game winner with about 3 seconds left. Teddy Allmaras had 14 points, Bo Belquist 13 and Hunter Thompson 10, to complete a well balanced scoring attack. NR-S is now 1-0 overall.

Seth Nelson paced the Cardinals with 19 points, Kyle Leapaldt had 17 and Payton Smith added 16. Carrington will likely be one of the top teams in District 5 and Region 3.
