Rockets beat Fulton, forging path to host playoff game

receptions from
Hunter Boone.
FULTON, Ky. – Crittenden County’s hurry-up offense was clicking early and piled up five touchdowns before Fulton could catch its breath as the Rockets posted a 48-12 First District Class A victory.

Crittenden’s sophomore quarterback Hunter Boone had his most accurate outing to date, completing 9-of-15 passes, including three touchdowns as CCHS won its district-opener.

The road win gives the Rockets (3-4, 1-0) to a clear path to a home playoff game, virtually sealing at least a second-place finish in the league. Fulton County (1-6) has already beaten is natural rival, Fulton County, a team the Rockets host in two weeks. Then, Crittenden will go to district favorite Russellville to close the season.

Senior Rocket receiver Ethan Hunt kept his streak of consecutive games with a reception in tact, making it No. 20 and just two short of a school record. Hunt caught Boone’s first touchdown pass and finished with a couple more receptions to lead the receiving corps with 52 yards.

Maeson Myers rushed for a TD then caught a scoring strike from Boone to lift the Rockets to a an early 22-0 lead. Sophomore receiver Branen Lamey, surging in the last few games, set up the next CCHS touchdown with a catch for 34 yards that took his team to the one-yard line. Senior Charlie Johnson punched it in for a 28-0 halftime lead.

Boone found classmate Gavin Dickerson for his final scoring pass before the reserves cleaned up the victory in the second half behind a mercy-rule running clock.

Crittenden’s defense kept the quick Bulldog backs corralled almost the entire game. One broke a 50-yard TD run late against the reserves, but other than that the athletic Dogs were shutout by the first-team defense. Fulton scored its only other TD on a kickoff return.

Jake Gibson (59) makes a tackle
after a Fulton interception.
The Bulldogs turned the ball over four times and Crittenden made good use of the opportunities. Adam Wright, Dylan Smith and Mitchell Joyce all recovered fumbles for Crittenden and Devon Nesbitt intercepted at Fulton pass.

Nesbitt, a sophomore running back, rushed for 118 yards, his best game as a Rocket and first over the century mark.

Crittenden will play Ballard Memorial in a non-district game at home next week.

- Fulton County (0-5) – Fulton County was slammed by Webster County 6-60 last week.  Expect a similar result when Russellville travels to Hickman this week.
2016 Playoff Outlook – 1A, District 2
- Bethlehem (3-2) – Bethlehem had trouble with Bellevue (1A, 1-5) winning 17-10.  They still would look to be in the running for the district crown but have to deal with Holy Cross (Covington) this week. Holy Cross should come out on top easily in this one.
- Campbellsville (2-4) – As expected, Campbellsville dispatched Fort Knox easily, 48-6.  They take on Danville (2A, 5-1) this week and will need some help if they expect to pull out a victory.  Danville’s only loss came to Corbin (7-28 final score), the team that nearly beat Mayfield (35-34 final score) last week.
- Caverna (0-5) – Idle last week.  They take on Somerset (2A, 3-2) at home this week.  Expect Somerset to take home its fourth victory of the year.
- Fort Knox (0-5) – Larue County (3A, 2-4) is this week’s test for Fort Knox.  Larue has taken down Campbellsville, 34-18, already this season.  Looks like Fort Knox will have its fifth running clock before this one’s over.

Union County pounds Rockets 56-15

Sophomore Banen Lamey had his
best night of the season, catching 3
passes for 40 yards.
MARION, Ky. - Crittenden County drew first blood, but the fearless Braves were undaunted by a first-period deficit and reeled off 56 straights points to easily beat the Rockets 56-15.

Ethan Hunt caught a 24-yard touchdown pass from Rocket quarterback Hunter Boone on the game's third play and Crittenden celebrated briefly its 7-0 mark on Union County.

From there, the Braves (4-1) outmanned Crittenden (2-4) on every inch of the turf, piling up more than 500 yards of offense behind running back Dontae Smith's game-high 192 yards rushing and four touchdowns.

Boone finished the game with 147 yards passing on 13-of-31 accuracy, but he was picked off twice. One interception set up a Union touchdown in the first half. Union QB Jacob Winters was even more effective, completing a dozen passes on 22 tries and piling up 217 yards with help from four receivers. James Hutchison had more than half of those yards on three catches, one a 77-yard touchdown.

Maeson Myers (3) gets a little push
from teammate Charlie Johnson
on a kickoff return.
Crittenden backup quarterback Hunter Jones capped off the otherwise uneventful night by racing 79 yards for a late touchdown after the game's outcome was well established.

The Rockets open Class A First District play next week at Fulton City.

2016 District 1A, District 1 Review – Week 5

  • Russellville (5-0) – Their five opponents have a combined record of 6-19 this season.  The Panthers currently lead Class A in scoring with 240 points.
  • Fulton City (1-4) – Lost to South Fulton (TN) 0-48 last week.  South Fulton (TN) is 3-2 with one loss coming to #1 ranked Union City (TN).
  • Fulton County (0-4) – Fulton County was taken down easily by Gibson County (TN) 12-49.  Gibson County is now 3-2 on the season with two of the wins coming against Fulton County and Fulton City.


2016 Playoff Outlook – 1A, District 2

  • Bethlehem (2-2) – Still several questions to be answered with this team.  Look for them to be possibly challenged by Campbellsville for the district title.
  • Campbellsville (1-4) – Strength of schedule may have hurt the Eagles record early in the season as two of their opponents are ranked in the AP poll this past week.  Another loss came to Glasgow which is 4-0 and unranked in state polls.  Expect a huge win against Fort Knox next week.
  • Caverna (0-5) – One of two 0-5 teams in 1A this year.  Don’t expect much other than a win against Fort Knox the rest of the season.  Most likely they will hold the #3 district seed.
  • Fort Knox (0-4) – They have been outscored 22-168 on the season.  Looks like a #4 seed in the district will again be Fort Knox’s destiny this season.
