Rocklin racked up 36:18 in ball control time to Inderkum 9:42, but that didn’t mean the Thunder could rack up early points.
Inderkum held Rocklin to just two field goals the the first half and then stunned the Thunder with a 30-yard CJ Spencer TD pass to Larry Hardy with just three-seconds left in the half to tie the game.
A successful PAT kick made it 7-6, and Inderkum took the lead to the halftime locker room.
Although he didn’t pick up a TD himself, Rocklin running back Evyn Holtz did the bulk of the work, carrying the football 36 times for 152 yards. That accounted for nearly half of Rocklin’s impressive 352 yards in total offense on 70 plays. Inderkum had 185 yards on 37 plays.
The third quarter though was all Rocklin. Besides piling on the Time of Possession numbers, the Thunder also piled on the points with drives of 65 and 23 yards.
Two TD passes from Rocklin quarterback Logan Webb to receivers Andrew Castle and Skyler Gonzalez completed the scoring.
Webb was nine for 17 and 118 yards in the air, hitting his top receiver Greg Sorenson four times for 79 of those yards.
