In Marion, Crittenden County moved to 5-1 and 2-0 in Class A, First District play with a rare Saturday night win over Fulton County, 47-6.

The Rockets scored all 47 points in the first two quarters, most of it coming on the shoulders of senior running back Xander Tabor. In one half of work, he’d finish with three touchdowns and 119 yards on just 18 carries. Crittenden County quarterback Luke Crider did the rest, finding Preston Morgeson twice for scores while going 10-for-13 passing and 104 yards.

Fulton County, delayed for two weeks with coronavirus complications, lost three fumbles and had three passes intercepted. A 24-yard interception return from Deivyn Turner, with 9:09 left in regulation, prevented the shutout.
