Rock County Fury prepare for first state appearance

Posted: Updated:

BELOIT, Wis. (WKOW) -- The mascot of the Rock County girls hockey team might be the Fury, but they are currently creating their own version of a Cinderella story as they make their first-ever state appearance. 

Last year, the Fury finished fourth in the Badger conference with a 4-5-1 record, 7-16-1 overall. During the off-season, head coach Darrel Moore resigned and the future seemed uncertain for the eight-member co-op. Long-time referee Dave Soddy saw nothing but opportunity. He applied for the job and went right to work, helping the Fury to a 16-10-1 overall record and to their first ever state appearance. 

The Fury will face Hayward Co-op Friday at the Alliant Energy Center at 11 a.m. with a trip to the finals on the line.
