HAGERMAN — The Goddard Lady Rocket basketball team came ever so close to claiming that elusive district championship as they fell to district rival Artesia 51-47 in a game played at neutral Hagerman High School. The Rockets held a late double-digit lead only to miss five free throws and commit numerous turnovers down the stretch as the Bulldogs came from way back to gain the victory.
