Home-standing Livingston takes two from Rockets

Devin Clark (30) had a double, double
for the Rockets in a losing effort.
Crittenden County's boys and girls lost at Livingston Central Friday night. Neither team has been able to manage a district victory in five tries this season. Both play Lyon County in the final Fifth District doubleheader next Friday night at Rocket Arena.

The Lady Rockets (1-12) lost 68-31 at Livingston after falling behind early and never getting into a rhythm on either end of the floor. The girls played better in the third period, but Livingston – led by Aneta Sloma's 23 points – won going away.

Crittenden's boys (6-8) shot poorly from the floor most of the game and made just half of 26 fouls shots. Center Devin Clark was a bright spot, however, scoring 16 and grabbing 14 rebounds in a 65-51 loss. Clark scored twice his 8-point average by shooting 7-for-9 from the floor and 2-for-3 at the line. As a team, Crittenden shot just 38 percent from the floor and made only 2-of-9 three-pointers.

Fifth District leader Livingston is 11-6 overall this season and undefeated in five league games. The Cardinals got solid performances from Lucas Croft (26 points, 6 rebounds) and Kenneth Cowsert (20 points, 11 rebounds).
