Rocklin 4th vs. Rocklin 5th/Lincoln 1st

That's right, we're taking on two teams at once just to keep the games interesting! Only 2 players from Rocklin 5th showed up this morning. Several guys from the Lincoln 1st ward, who were anxious to play since their 8am opponents never showed, decided to fill in for the MIA Rck 5th players. Despite having the best talent from both wards, they were no match for the mighty Rocklin 4th Ward Warriors!

The game started friendly and light-hearted, but quickly steamed up as our team pulled out some amazing passes and shots one after another. Both teams were evenly match through the first quarter, but by the end of the 1st half, Rocklin 4th was up by 12 points: 35-23. The other team lost their best player at the half and things started to get really fun. With both teams fighting to keep up the momentum, fouls were flying and so were some people! Watch the video (see below) for the excellent slam dunk by Mike and to see Eric tackle the other team!
Final score:
Rocklin 4th with 72 vs. Rocklin 5th with 50

Rocklin 4th vs. Rocklin 2nd

I guess there aren't many early-risers in the Rocklin 2nd Ward because none of them showed up for the 8:00AM game. We, Rocklin 4th, on the other hand, had 8 wide-eyed and perky players ready to go. Way to represent! We're so good we played ourselves and still won! Ha! Take that!

Mike graciously showed us some moves he picked up while playing in Zion at the Lord's School and slam-dunked the ball over our puny frames. Thanks, Mike! We all must look like ants from way up there... Being the professional videographer that I am, I conveniently ran out of film and missed the entire shot in all its awesomeness (yes, I've fired myself). So Mike will have to show us all again at the next game against Lincoln 1st Ward on February 2nd at (you guessed it) 8:00AM! Come see the action LIVE!
