Rockets Roll in Opening Night Victory Over Stratford Tigers

Spencer – Austin Bacon helped lead the Spencer Rockets on both sides of the ball as the team cruised to an opening night win over the Stratford Tigers, 27-7.

The junior made plays on both sides of the ball, accounting for three of the Rockets four touchdowns. Bacon had a rushing and receiving touchdown from quarterback Jarred Mandel on offense and returned an interception for a touchdown on defense.

“Logan (Zschernitz) was coming up to me in the huddle and telling me that if we go outside more, we can get it. So, I listened to him and we got it,” Bacon said.

Spencer returns to the field to host the Osseo-Fairchild Thunder on Friday, Aug. 24.
Stratford looks for redemption as the team hosts the Antigo Red Robins in the season home opener. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
