Rocket 'D' annihilates Webster County 49-7

Crittenden's defense smothered Webster. Here,
Brady Birk makes first contact the Trojan RB.
DIXON, Ky. - An unprecedented defensive effort set the tone for the righting of Crittenden County’s ship Friday in a 49-7 Rocket victory.

Although its offense has pulled most of the headlines through four games, Crittenden’s defense was a mighty machine, tagging the Trojans for loss after loss until the game was solidly in hand.

Webster never moved the chains against the first-team defense. It picked up its only first down in the fourth quarter against the reserves, and that’s also when the Trojans posted their only score. In fact, Webster had just four positive-yard plays in the first half and had net negative-72 yards at the break.

Crittenden scored on its first possessions and 6-of-8 in the opening half. 

Junior quarterback Hunter Boone threw three touchdowns, including one to freshman Caden McCalister for his first varsity score. Junior Ethan Dossett had six catches for 119 yards and and junior running back Devon Nesbitt had 103 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Junior Branen Lamey scored twice via the ground and the air.


Lineman Brady Birk had a big night, too. He blocked a punt and made a tackle for loss on a bad punt snap deep in Webster territory. Both plays set up Rocket touchdowns. 

The Rockets play on the road next week at undefeated Union County.



Rocket DE Adam Beavers
caused a fumble on this play.

Caldwell explodes to swamp Rocket excitement

The Rocket defense frustrated Caldwell early. Here freshman
Caden McCalister (22) hangs onto Tiger Dylan Gray until
reinforcements arrive in the form of Sean O'Leary (57) and
Adam Beavers (55).
MARION, Ky. – Pardon the cliché, but those who live by the sword have a tendency to die by it, too.

Crittenden County's all-out ariel attack had hopes in Rocket Nation simmering in the first period against arch-rival Caldwell County Friday night. However, the explosive Tigers – a bit slow on the draw – sliced up the Rockets once their vast arsenal was unsheathed. 

Out of the gate, Crittenden (1-2) posted a 14-3 lead in front a huge hometown crowd. Its defense frustrated Caldwell County (3-1) for a time and the Rocket offense was living large on the arm of junior quarterback Hunter Boone. 

A handful of successful strikes over the middle burned the Tigers' man coverage and Crittenden raced out to its first lead over Caldwell since 2009. 

It didn't last too long.

The Tiger response to Crittenden's sword work was equally as violent in the final minutes of the first half as Boone was picked off on three straight offensive possessions. In fact, Caldwell intercepted a record six Boone passes – two were returned for touchdowns and three others led to six-point responses in short measure.

Branen Lamey.

By the time the boys took their customary intermission, Caldwell was breathing a bit easier than it did in the early going. The Tigers were ahead 51-21 at the half and the game was effectively over.

The Rockets will be on the road next week against winless Webster County.
