Rockets roll a perfect 7 vs. Hopkins Central

Dylan Hollis (39) dives for more yards.
MARION, Ky. – Crittenden County scored 28 first-quarter points thanks in part to Hopkins Central fumbles and the Rockets smoked the Storm 48-24 in a game that was not as close as the final score might indicate.

It was Crittenden's seventh straight win over the Storm – a team to which the Rockets have never lost.

Crittenden opened the game with a turnover of its own on the Rockets’ first possession, which let Hopkins Central score a touchdown on a short field. From there, the tide turned and washed away any hopes the Storm had of making it a game. Crittenden scored seven unanswered TDs before halftime.

Senior running back Dylan Hollis scored three touchdowns and quarterback Nick Castiller ran for two and threw for another as the hosts piled up virtually all of their more than 300 yards offense in the first half. Before the break, the mercy rule was enforced and the running clock made short work of the last two periods after the Rockets led 48-8 at intermission.

Hopkins Central turned the ball over five times on fumbles in the first half and once on an interception. CCHS lineman Devin Hopper gobbled up two balls the Storm left on the ground and Ethan Hunt intercepted a pass.

Rocket reserves played the entire second half and Hopkins Central snuck in a couple of touchdowns with their first-team players still in the game.
