Lyons defeats Rockets for third place

Crittenden County had a chance to grab third place in the Fifth District by beating Lyon County at Rocket Arena Friday night. However, Crittenden let a close game get away down the stretch as the Lyons outscored them by six points in the final frame to win by 11.

Thomas Scott scored 14 for the Rocket and he had a team-high seven rebounds. Lyon County got 23 points from Warren Sutton. 

The Rockets complete their regular-season district play without a victory in the league. Crittenden is 6-11 overall and Lyon is 6-10.

In the girls' game, Crittenden lost by nine despite getting a chance to win it at the line. The Lady Lyons committed 24 fouls in the contest, but the Lady Rockets made just 21-of-37 free throws.

Bailey Brown led Crittenden with 22 points, including a dozen at the foul line. Jill P'Poole had 18 for the Lyon girls, who finish 4-2 with second place in the district wrapped up. Crittenden completes its district play with no league victories. The Lady Rockets are 1-15 overall.
