Rockets destroy Fulton County 50-6

kickoff to set up a Rocket touchdown.
HICKMAN, Ky. – With more touchdowns than first downs, the Rockets were hardly challenged at Fulton County Friday as Crittenden County captured its second straight Class A First District victory, setting up a showdown next week in Marion against fifth-ranked Russellville.

Pilot turnovers gave the opportunistic Rocket offense more than enough room to post gaudy first-period numbers en route to a 50-6 victory. Crittenden scored five touchdowns on its first six plays from scrimmage and the mercy-rule running clock went into effect with three minutes to go in the opening period.

Rocket quarterback Nick Castiller threw for 203 yards on 6-of-8 accuracy, tying a school record for most passing touchdowns in a game – five. Dylan Hollis caught two, Tyler Coleman one, Seth Birdwell one and Ethan Hunt one.

Hunt also had two interceptions in the game. Each set up Rocket touchdowns in the first half.

The Rocket defense held Fulton to negative-8 yards
rushing during the game.
The winless Pilots picked off a screen pass in the last quarter and dashed the Rocket hopes of their first shutout in three years. However, the defense didn’t allow a single point and held Fulton to negative-eight yards on the ground.

Senior defensive lineman Travis Fitzgerald recovered a first-half fumble, giving him eight for his career and tying school record.

Crittenden and Russellville have locked up first and second places in the district. Next week’s matchup will determine the league championship. Both teams will host first-round playoffs in November.
