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.
