UNDERWOOD — Led by Adam Creek’s three rushing and single passing touchdown, the Underwood Rockets had an easy first round of the Section 4 9-man playoff against the Brandon-Evansville Chargers, winning the game 48-14.
Creek led the Rocket rushing attack with 128 yards on nine attempts. He also went 3 for 4 for 42 yards through the air.
Matt Biegler followed with 119 yards on the ground and a touchdown. Noah Thompson had 90 yards and a touchdown.
Ben Field led Rocket receivers with two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown.
The Rocket defense only allowed one score in each half of the game. Cole Kugler led the Rockets with six and a half sacks. Max Kollar followed with four. Biegler and Creek each had interceptions.
Despite standing strong, the Chargers were able to gain yards through the air. Tom Bosak led the Charger offense with 102 yards and two touchdowns through the air.
“Offensively, it was nice to see a more balanced attack,” said Underwood head coach Chuck Ross. “Creek had his biggest night of the year running and throwing the ball. The defense has played two outstanding games in a row.”
The Rockets will travel to Wheaton/Herman-Norcross on Saturday to face off against the Warriors, who edged the Ashby Arrows 54-46 in its first game of the playoffs Tuesday.
