UNDERWOOD — The Underwood boys basketball team was able to squeak out an opening night win as they defeated Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley 54-50 Friday.
The Rockets were able to jump out to an 14-0 lead in the opening half, but saw the Wolverines get back into the game and trail 27-24 into the break.
Both teams would battle back and forth, but Underwood would hold off C-G-B with a few clutch free throws to pick up the win.
Senior Zane Lind led the Rockets scoring with 20 points and seven rebounds, while teammate Steffan Stroh recorded a double-double with 10 tallies and 13 boards.
The Rockets will now prepare for the Henning Hornets in a 7:30 p.m. Little Eight Conference game Thursday at home.
