Crittenden County had lost 14 straight times to Lyon County dating back to 2008, but Friday night they stopped the skid, knocking off the Lyons 59-53 at Eddyville.

Devin Belt scored 14 and Landon Young 11 as Crittenden won a game that was close the whole way. The Rockets biggest lead was 8 points in the first half but Lyon was within two twice down the stretch.

Crittenden had last topped the Lyons on Jan. 18, 2008, beating them by one point at Marion when Rob Towery was head coach of the Rockets.

The Lady Rockets lost 66-40 to the Lyons. Chelsea Oliver led the way for CCHS with 15 points.

Crittenden's boys play Webster County Saturday night at the Messenger Tipoff Classic and the girls play at University Heights.
