The Rockets certainly didn't do anything to diminish that ranking against the Trojans on Friday. After the dust had settled at Trojan Stadium, the CCHS had reeled off 463 total yards en route to a lopsided 53-0 victory.

"We pretty much got steam-rolled by a very good football team," noted WCHS head coach Matthew Kettler. "They came in here undefeated and you can see why, they have some very good athletes and they play a very aggressive game."

Crittenden led by a slim 7-0 margin at the end of the first quarter on a 35-yard touchdown run from Tanner Nix. The flood gates opened in the second stanza as the Rockets erupted for 25 points to own a comfortable 32-0 lead at
intermission.

Dustin Hernandez caught a 71-yard touchdown strike from Bryce Willis to make it 13-0 at the 11:07 mark. The Rocket defense then held WCHS on a fourth-and-11 to set up their third score of the night, an 18-yard touchdown pass from Willis to Robert Cudnik.

CCHS (5-0) scored on its next possession as Willis fired another perfect pass to Nix on a 4th-and-12 for a 23-yard touchdown with 3:15 left in the half. A Webster fumble, one of two on the night that led to touchdowns, put the Rockets in great field position at the 18 yard line. Four plays later Andrew Freeman scored on a 1-yard plunge into the end zone to push the advantage to 32-0 with :18 left in the half.

A Crittenden County fumble to open the third quarter set the stage for Webster's most productive offensive output of the game. A 32-yard pass reception from Landon Harting to Derrick Douglas pushed the Trojans into Rocket territory. Harting then found Laken Benson for a 9-yard reception at the CCHS 32.

The drive stalled a bit as the Trojans faced a 4th-and-17 on a quarterback sack. But the Rockets were flagged with a personal foul on the play setting up a 4th-and-1. Jamey Kennada got the call on the fourth down play and rumbled to the CCHS 18 for a Webster first down. The Trojans moved to the Rocket 14 yard line before an interception by CCHS linebacker Terry Werne killed the drive.

CCHS promptly scored on a 36-yard from Nix with 3:19 remaining in the third quarter, stretching the lead to 39-0. Nix led the Rockets in rushing with 97 yards on just six carries.

"That Nix kid is a great player, he's pretty tough," Kettler said of the CCHS senior running back. "They have some kids that make big plays."

Another Rocket interception opened the door for a nine-yard touchdown run from Freeman with :29 left in the period. On its final possession of the game, Webster drove the ball to the CCHS 12 yard line, thanks to pass completions to Jacob Clinard and Trenton Foe. But the drive stalled as the Rocket defense again held on fourth-and-three.

Crittenden got its final touchdown with 1:00 left in the game on a 87-yard run from reserve halfback Bowe Wallace. Crittenden County rushed for 306 yards while Willis passed for 157 yards on 8-of-11 attempts.

Webster County (2-3) totaled 137 yards, 45 on the ground and 92 through air on 11-of -22 accuracy from Harting. Webster had two fumbles lost and two interceptions.

Kennada led the rushing attack with 36 yards on 11 carries while James Nance added 28 yards on eight totes. Douglas led the receiving corps with 38 yards on two receptions while Benson was limited to just three catches for 24 yards. Clinard had two catches for 19 yards while Foe added one catch good for 10 yards.

Webster will take on McLean County this Friday in Calhoun for its very important district open. The Cougars are struggling this season with an 0-5 record, including a 46-8 loss last week against Daviess County. McLean has allowed 229 points this season while scoring only 22.

"We have to come in with a great week of practice and forget about the Crittenden game," noted Kettler. "We have to get focused on McLean and winning that first district game. I know they (Cougars) will be fired up for us, looking for their first win.

We'll have to go over there and play hard and with a positive attitude."
