Lady Rockets get bounced by Big East Conference rival Rams

Shooting well or shooting poorly — it doesn’t matter if a team is on the right side of the final score, and Cedar Grove-Belgium’s boys are a perfect example of that the past two games.
MICHAEL NAVIS s1012618550 4COn Monday, the Rockets didn’t exactly tear up the scoreboard in a 51-36 home victory over nonconference foe Two Rivers.
“It was somewhat of an ugly game,” coach Josh Ketterhagen said.
Guard Jordan Villa and forward Ethan Wonser led the Rockets with 13 points each. Forward Cameron Kirst added 12.
Leading scorer Jason von Heimburg, who averages 15.4 points per game, scored six.
“They bothered him quite a bit. They took him away,” Ketterhagen said.
“He takes a lot of contact and sometimes it’s not called. Part of it is because he’s such a big guy and a strong guy. I give him credit. He was battling through every game. He never complains and he works hard.”
But von Heimburg, a guard, led the team with 17 rebounds.
The Rockets’ defense held Two Rivers to 25% shooting.
“I think part of that is because defensively we were flying around pretty well. Made them take shots they weren’t comfortable taking,” Ketterhagen said.
On Friday, the Rockets knocked off Big East Conference rival Random Lake, 82-69, at home. They jumped out to a 47-34 halftime lead and cruised.
Von Heimburg had 21 points and nine rebounds, and Villa scored 18. Michael Navis had 11.
The Rockets shot 60% (27-for-45) on two-pointers and 54.5% (12-for-22) on threes.
“We shot the lights out,” Ketterhagen said.
Last Thursday, the Rockets lost at St. Mary Springs, 79-59. Von Heimburg had 18 points and Navis had 16.
“I thought we battled hard. They’re a physical team,” Ketterhagen said.
The Rockets, 6-6 in the Big East and 8-9 overall, host Hilbert (7-5 Big East) on Friday and nonconference foe Kiel on Monday, Feb. 5, before the conference tournament starts.
Lady Rockets fall to rival Random Lake
Alicia Hartman scored 26 points to lead the Rams over the Rockets, 47-29, in Random Lake on Friday.
Alex Mentink led the Rockets with nine points. Ellie Felsinger had 11 rebounds, and Amanda Merdink had seven.
“Alex Mentink had a nice game with three three-point baskets to lead our team. Ellie had a good day on the boards,” coach Jason Jones said.
The Rockets, 4-8 in the Big East and 7-9 overall, were to play at Hilbert on Tuesday and host Carmen Northwest on Feb. 15. Random Lake is 9-3.
