Caldwell continues reign over Rockets 53-6

Rocket QB Nick Castiller hands off the ball deep
in Rocket territory.
MARION, Ky. – From the outset, it was clear that Caldwell County's reign of terror was to continue over the Rocket football team.

On a night when the Rockets paid a public salute to almost 100 local veterans, military personnel and first responders, it was Caldwell's show between the lines. 

While Class 3A's No. 7 Tigers were pouncing on the Rockets like a wounded dove in the first period, Crittenden's previously high-powered offense was crippled. Over its first nine snaps from scrimmage, Crittenden managed only one play for positive yards and Caldwell raced out to a 20-0 lead in the first period.

The Rockets entered the matchup undefeated after three games and ranked 13th in Class A.

Caldwell has won six straight matchups against the Rockets and 10 of the last 11.

First-year sophomore quarterback Shane Burns threw for three touchdowns and junior running back Javonte Riley rushed for two. The Tigers led 33-0 at the break and didn't stop scoring until late in the fourth period.

Crittenden managed a touchdown the game's final play when backup QB Hunter Boone passed to freshman classmate Gavin Dickerson.

The Rockets finished with just five net yards rushing and 55 through the air. The came into the game as Class A's second best passing team. 

Crittenden will play at Webster County next week.
