Drake Rojas is getting hard to stop these days. Rojas turned in another stellar game on Port Neches-Groves’ home court Tuesday, leading the Indians with 31 points in a 69-54 win over Kelly. The last time Rojas took the PNG court, he poured in 40 in a win over Little Cypress-Mauriceville. The senior guard is now averaging 31.6 points, given his 24-point performance last week at West Brook.
Jackson Simmons had 14 and Noah Marchak 12 for the Indians (2-1). Asaad Bodden led Kelly with 16 points.
PNG will take on West Brook again at 4 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the Nederland/YMBL Classic at Nederland High.
