Central wins first ever over Rockets

Rocket return man Jacob Russelburg
injured his knee in the 2nd half. The
extent of the injury was not
immediately known.
MORTON'S GAP, Ky. – Hopkins Central capitalized on a number of Rocket mistakes and eked out a 25-19 home win Friday, beating Crittenden County for the first time ever.

Class 3A Hopkins Central converted on a fourth-and-goal from the Crittenden 21 with just under six minutes to play, scoring the winning TD on a pass from Hagan Oakley to Mason Burgett at the front pylon. Then its defense overcame a full volley of rounds from a desperate Rocket offense down the stretch. 

It was a game that could have turned on a dime in the waning moments. Instead, the Storm held on after intercepting a double pass with just over a minute to play.
