Meanwhile, Hancock (0-6) continues to struggle to find yardage. Rockwood held the Panthers to less than 1 yard per carry, allowing 39 yards on 41 rushes.
"It's obvious that we need to keep working to find our offensive niche," Hancock coach Dave Mahaffey said. "Our passing game was pretty much ineffective and we weren't opening up holes to run in. I firmly believe that this team can play better than they are showing. Rockwood took advantage of their opportunities. We have got to show up better than this in the future."
Rockwood went up 7-0 with 5:02 remaining in the first quarter when Miller charged through the middle for a 25-yard touchdown run.
Sophomore Tanner Dobrzanski kept Hancock's hopes alive briefly by returning the ensuing kickoff 80 yards down the right sideline to reduce the deficit to 7-6.
"That was a good long run by Tanner," Mahaffey added. "That was his second touchdown on a kickoff return this year."
The Rockets outscored the Panthers 20-0 in the second period to build a 27-6 halftime lead. Valdez and freshman quarterback Ben Miller each scored on a 1-yard run and Huston scored on a 10-yard touchdown run through the middle.
Rockwood got its final score during the fourth quarter when Sleasman went straight through the middle for a 2-yard touchdown run.
"Our defense really did a great job tonight," Rullo added. "We just shut them down. We really did not let them get anything. We were able to force some turnovers."
Junior linebacker Nick Harvey made 11 tackles and one sack for Hancock.
