The Crittenden County Rockets routed the Caldwell County Tigers in the quarterfinal round of the Second Region All “A” Classic Tuesday night, Jan. 10 with a final score of 63-44.

The Tigers have been plagued with a host of injuries since the season’s start. Short two starters, Caldwell County struggled to find a groove amongst the new starting five. Crittenden County took advantage of the opportunity, putting up nine straight to convert Caldwell County’s opening 5-2 lead to a 9-5 Rocket advantage. Travis Champion turned a stolen possession into a breakaway basket to push the lead out to 11-5. Xavier Bumphus’ three cut the lead back 13-9 with just over a minute in the first frame, but Preston Morgeson answered back with a jumper just inside the arc to put the Rockets up 15-9.
