Warriors build big lead, hold off Rockets
ROCK FALLS – Tuesday night's nonconference game between the rival Sterling Golden Warriors and Rock Falls Rockets was a microcosm of each team's season so far.
Sterling built a big lead, then watched it almost slip away. Rock Falls dug itself a hole, then saw a frantic comeback effort fall short.
The Rockets whittled the Warriors' 19-point lead to one in the final 3 minutes, but Sterling prevailed 69-66 at Tabor Gym.
