Wellston trailed 9-5 at the end of the first quarter but outscored the hosts Redmen 19-12 in the second to take a 24-21 lead at halftime.

The Rockets extended its lead to 37-29 after three-quarters of play, before Rock Hill began a rally, outscoring Wellston 20-7 in the fourth.

Hankins led the Redmen with seven points in the fourth quarter, including a three-pointer that tied the game at 50 with 22 seconds left.

Wellston, however, quickly got control back as McKenzie responded with a three-pointer with 12.8 seconds left and Michael Graham made 1 of 2 free throw attempts for the win.

The Rockets held Rock Hill to 43.1 percent (19 of 44) shooting from the floor.

In the junior varsity game, the Rockets dropped to 0-1 on the season after losing to the Redmen 30-18.

Wellston was in action at home on Tuesday in a non-league game against Miller. The Rockets will open TVC Ohio Division play at home on Friday against Alexander.
