Rocket 'D' annihilates Webster County 49-7

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.
