In this story you’ll see the St. Cloud Tech Tigers host the ROCORI Spartans football team as they squared off last Friday evening. Both teams were coming off disappointing losses, each desperately needing a win to climb up in the CLC standings. ROCORI came out strong defensively, getting after the quarterback and creating turnovers. By halftime, ROCORI had built a 14 – 0 lead.
The second half started out with the defenses dominating once again. It wasn’t until early in the fourth quarter that St. Cloud Tech caused a big turnover at midfield that eventually resulted in their first touchdown of the game. Although the Spartans controlled the ball and physicality of the game, Tech still managed to make it a one-touchdown game. However, Derek Lieser and the Spartans drove down the field and put the game away with a touchdown. ROCORI won in impressive fashion 21 – 7.

DigElog Waite Park proudly presents our opening day coverage of the 2009 St. Cloud Apollo Eagles football season. Last Friday, the Eagles hosted the ROCORI Spartans. Although St. Cloud only returned five starters from offense and defense, the team still had revenge on their minds. ROCORI came back from a 15-0 deficit to beat Apollo last year in the playoffs. ROCORI came into the game with many question marks as well under a new head coach and quarterback.
However, within the first two drives the Spartans quickly answered any questions people had about their offense. Leading 14-0 after the first quarter ROCORI never looked back and went on to crush the Eagles 35-14. The lone bright spot in the game had to be Apollo’s running game as Chris Rocheleau carried the ball 43 times for 187 yards, and the team combined for 252 rushing yards.
Check out this great highlight example of Chris Rocheleau running into the end zone for a Eagles touchdown against the ROCORI Spartans last night. Stay tuned later this
week for more highlights from last nights varsity football game between
St. Cloud Apollo and ROCORI.

One Year Ago
The long awaited football season has arrived. On
August 29, 2008 the Apollo Eagles opened up their season on the road
against CLC opponent, the ROCORI Spartans. In this story you’ll see all
the highlights from the first half including a DigElog exclusive, the sideline camera. You’ll also see the Apollo team get off to a slow start and fall behind early.
The Eagles trailed by 17 going into
the second half, but a turnover and a key touchdown pulled Apollo
within 10 points. The Eagles success can be attributed to their ability
to run the ball to the left side. However, some adjustments by the
Spartan defense, and a phenomenal touchdown run by Nick Schneider
sealed the win for the Spartans as they got coach Baumgarten his first
win in the CLC. Watch the highlights of the second half and be sure to tune in to DigElog Waite Park all season as we bring you coverage from the 2009 St. Cloud Apollo Eagles football team.
