Rockies pull out homecoming win over Memorial

September 18, 2010

PLYMOUTH — It will likely go down in recent Plymouth Rockies football lore as “the drive.”
It was a thing of beauty to football aficionados — 10 minutes and 16 seconds covering 60 yards for the winning score with just :13 left in the football game. It was 20 plays long. It saw three fourth down conversions and 15 carries by a sophomore — in the game because of injury. It saw another sophomore, also in the game because of injury, make a play that could be the beginning of an illustrious high school career.
In the end it was a 21-14 Homecoming win for Plymouth’s Rockies over Elkhart Memorial that many would call unlikely, the more emotional would call a miracle, and was simply a matter of force of will. With Rockies mainstays Brock Smith and Houston Hodges on the sidelines with injuries, a pair of sophomores made the most of their chances to get in a varsity game.
