Team effort lifts Rockford over East Kentwood

Highlights from East Kentwood vs. Rockford

ROCKFORD, MICH. - It was homecoming at Rockford High School on Friday, Oct. 13. The school honored inductees into its Hall of Fame.

And the Rams put up a Hall of Fame effort in the second half to come back and beat East Kentwood 24-10.

The game started slow, with a very defensive effort, and no score after one quarter. However, it wasn't too long into the second when Maliq Thompson broke the tie, giving Rockford a 7-0 lead.

An Elijah Short field goal and Kionte Blakely touchdown would give the Falcons a 10-7 lead at half.

With the win, Rockford heads into the regular season finale against Hudsonville with a chance to finish second in the OK Red.

East Kentwood will battle Caledonia for fourth place in the conference next week.
