Kyle Nott from Jenison opened the scoring with an 80 yard run as the Wildcats took a 6-0 lead. The Rockets answered on a 15 yard scoring pass from Logan Hekkema to Carter Fultion makin g it 7-6 after one.
Reeths-Puffer made it 10-6 at the half on a 29 yard field goal from Zack Vazndersleet.
The Jenison defense shutout the Rockets in the second half. Ray Russo's 27 yard touchdown run gave Jenison the lead for good. Benny Dieterle put the game away with a five yard score in the fourth quarter making the final 20-10.
The Rockets have a non-conference game coming up against Middleville, while Jenison takes on Fruitport next week.
