Lyons sweep two at Rocket Arena

Crittenden County's basketball team slipped to 0-2 in district play with a 78-63 loss to Lyon County Friday at Rocket Arena. The game was highly anticipated because former Rocket player Thomas Scott would be reurning to Marion after transfering to Lyon County. Scott, a 6-5 forward, was not a factor in the game however. He was on the bench in foul trouble for about three-quarters of the game before fouling out. Lyon's quickness was a major factor though.

The Lady Rockets were inches from sending their contest into overtime but a three-point shot at the buzzer bounced off the rim and Lyon won 43-40. Crittenden is now 1-1 in district play.
