HAMILTON-WENHAM 31 ROCKPORT 29

The Vikings fall to 0-2 with a tight loss in Monday's home game, a game that could have gone either way.

It was a back and forth contest where the biggest lead on either end was four points, but the Generals pulled ahead down the stretch and forced a turnover with Rockport going for the tie.

Kylie Schrock led the way for Rockport with 23 points. She now has 987 for her career. Alex Osier knocked down a pair of three pointers for the other six points.

"It was a good game that was close the whole way," Rockport head coach Mike Wilson said. "We played well on defense but we need to find a way to be a little more balanced offensively."

Rockport is back in action on Wednesday at Georgetown (4 p.m.), Schrock needs 13 points to become the fourth Rockport girl to reach 1,000 career points.
