The Rockets shook off some early foul trouble for the nonleague win Saturday at the Wilbur Ellis SunDome Shootout in Yakima.

With standout guard Cale Johnson shackled to the bench with a pair of fouls, Castle Rock (8-2) fell into an eight-point hole. Johnson then led a furious rally to even the scores heading into halftime.

He finished with a game-high 19 points as the Rockets edged in front with frequent trips to the foul line in the second half.

“We kind of had control of it there at the end,” Castle Rock coach Kevin Johnson said.

Brock Johnson scored 16 points and Austin Elf and Austin Moore each added six.

The Rockets host Toledo on Wednesday.

CASTLE ROCK (55) — Cale Johnson 19, Brock Johnson 16, Austin Elf 6, Austin Moore 6, Ty Johnson 3, Jesse Althauser 3, Nate Williamson 2, Jacob Rahn 0, Mason Klingberg 0.

LAKEWOOD (52) — Alford 10, Kelly 6, Fritz 10, Kippem 3, Coleman 6, Schuller 7, Johnson 8.

Castle Rock   10   14   17   14 — 55

Lakewood     12   12   12   14 — 52
