Madisonville cruises to 49-0 win at Rocket Stadium

Rocket running back Grant Gardner looks for some rare running
room against the Maroon defense. Gardner led all rushers in
the game with 97 yards.
MARION, Ky. – Outmatched for the second week in a row, Crittenden County was helpless against the superior strength and speed of 9th ranked Madisonville from Class 4A.

The Maroons scored on their first play of the game when Jawan Combs went 60 yards for a touchdown. They tacked on two more rushing TDs of 64 yards and one of 57 yards. Tray Carr, a player area OVC colleges are courting, threw two touchdown passes, both to Dean Summers. Carr also ran for a touchdown.

At one point early in the game, Madisonville had run just four offense plays from scrimmage and had amassed three touchdowns. Through three quarters, Madisonville had run 21 plays and scored seven touchdowns – making a full one-thrid of their snaps worth six points.

Crittenden's best chance to score turned into six points for the visiting Maroons. The Rockets used a fumble recovery to help them get deep into Madisonville territory. When the drive stalled, Rocket placekicker Micah Hollamon tried a 30-yard field goal which was blocked. Combs scooped it up and went the other way 89 yards for a touchdown.

Rocket running back Grant Gardner led all rushers with 97 yards on 22 carries.

It was the third shutout for the Rockets this season; however, the teams that have kept them scoreless have all been ranked among the Top 10 in Class 2A, 3A and 4A – Murray, Tilghman and Madisonville.

Crittenden will play at Hancock County next week in the Class 2A playoffs. Madisonville hosts Allen County-Scottsville.
