Rockets can’t get by Dawson Springs this time

The Rockets found Dawson Springs to be rude hosts Tuesday night as it avenged an earlier season defeat, upending Crittenden 59-53. The game was a makeup game from last Thursday, postponed due to snowy weather.

With less than a week to go before they open Fifth District Tournament play, the setback left Rocket coach Brad Fraser still searching for answers.

After dismantling the Panthers last month in Marion 79-33, the makeup contest provided a chance for Crittenden to win consecutive games for the first time this season.

But the Panthers had other ideas, placing four players in double figures and halting its own six-game losing streak. Those four players nearly equaled the entire Rocket team, scoring a combined 49 points.

Lady Rockets back on winning track

The Lady Rockets got back on the winning track in convincing fashion Tuesday night, dismantling visiting Central Hopkins 85-48.

Crittenden jumped out to a 13-2 lead to get things going.

Lady Rocket senior point guard Jessi Hodge had a superb all-around night, scoring 21 points, dishing out seven assists, grabbing five rebounds and recording three steals as CCHS made short work of the Lady Storm. Hodge currently has 1,381 points in her Lady Rocket varsity career.

Freshman guard Bailey Brown also handed out four assists, senior Laken Tabor had three and senior center Summer Courtney and sophomore guard Kaitlin Binkley had two apiece.
As a team, Crittenden dished out a total of 20 assists, compared to just 13 turnovers.

Lady Rockets get back on winning track

After suffering three consecutive losses, the Lady Rockets took out their frustrations on a helpless Lady Panther's squad, winning 56-35, Friday night at Dawson Springs. Laken Tabor rallied the troops, leading Crittenden in scoring with 18 points.

The Lady Rockets jumped out to a 15-11 first quarter advantage, before ratcheting up the pressure in the second quarter, doubling up the Lady Panthers for a 36-18 lead at the half.

Jessie Hodge was the only other Crittenden player to score in double figures with 11 points. Bailey Brown added nine points and Summer Courtney dropped in eight respectively.

Crittenden plays again tomorrow night in a boys and girls double-header at Rocket Arena, starting at 6:00 pm.
