Lady Rockets advance to Class A title game

Madison Champion (right) had a double-double.
The Lady Rockets used an 18-3 run in the third quarter to leave Livingston Central in the exhaust Thursday night en route to an All A Classic semifinal victory at Hopkinsville.

Crittenden beat Livingston 60-43 led by junior Madison Champion's 20 points and 11 rebounds.

The win sends Crittenden County into the regional small-school championship game at 4pm Saturday at University Heights. The Lady Rockets will play Lyon County.

Livingston's intensity was strong in the first half and Crittenden foul trouble allowed the Lady Cardinals to keep the game close. It was tied at 23 at the half.

The Lady Rockets got six points and four rebounds from senior Meredith Evans in the first quarter after she came off the bench to fill in for Moss, who picked up two quick fouls. Kiana Nesbitt and Moss sat for a good part of the first half due to foul problems.

Crittenden dominated the second half, using defensive rebounds and its transition game to get going early in the third quarter.

Moss finished with 12. She now needs 36 points to break the Lady Rockets' all-time scoring record.
