Lady Rockets get third; boys fall to Trigg again

Coach Shannon Hodge's team collected three straight wins this week and the third one wrapped up third place in the Fifth District for the Lady Rockets. CCHS downed Trigg 55-42 on the road Friday. Cassidy Moss scored 21 to lead Crittenden.

Crittenden made easy work of the Lady Wildcats for the second time in five days and the Marion girls also beat Dawson Springs this week, giving them a 5-10 overall record. That gives the CCHS girls more wins this season than in either of the past two years when they won just four each.

The girls are now 2-4 in the district and will likely play Livingston Central in the first round of the post-season tournament, which will be at Rocket Arena. Livingston beat Lyon by four Friday night.

Meanwhile, the Rocket boys lost for the second time this year to Trigg County. Now, the Wildcats have an outright claim first place in the district and CCHS will finish second, likely facing Livingston Central in the post-season tournament. The Cardinals beat Lyon Friday night, but the teams have one more meeting which will determine final post-season seeding.

Crittenden led Trigg by one in the fourth period, but senior center Devin Belt fouled and Trigg quickly a lead it will continue to build upon until the end. The Rockets lost 57-48. Aaron Owen led the offense with 13 points, leaving him nine shy of the coveted 1,000-point career milestone. He will likely get there tonight when CCHS hosts Marshall County in a boys' JV and varsity doubleheader.
