Friday night, Jan. 8, was standing room only as the Rockford Lady Rams basketball team played host to the Hudsonville Eagles. Varsity girls and varsity boys each had their turn with the Eagles on this cold night.
The Lady Rams tipped off at 6:00 p.m., facing a talented Hudsonville team who sported a 5-3 record. This contest was a tremendous match-up of two premiere teams in the tough OK Red conference. Rockford was undefeated 7-0, having knocked the number-two-ranked Class B Catholic Central team in the second game of the season, and then continuing a strong winning roll through both conference and non-conference teams since.
The Rams employed a full court press throughout the game, forcing the Eagles in moving the ball up and down the court, which made for a fast-paced game from the start. In the end, Hudsonville played their best game to date, upending the Rams 54-47.
