MOUNT VERNON — Clarke Rowe rushed for 166 yards and three touchdowns and John Saylor added 146 yards and two scores to lead Rockcastle County to a 42-14 win over Lincoln County here Friday night in the Renfro Valley Jamboree Bowl.
The Rockets (2-1) hit hard and hit early, opening up a 21-0 lead in the first quarter and went on to rack up 432 yards offense.
The Rocket defense was equally impressive, holding the Patriots to minus-50 yards rushing.
"Rock is a solid team and well-coached, and our kids got to experience that first-hand tonight," said Lincoln coach Mike Settles. "Their kids don't look a whole lot different than ours but they just play so, so hard.
"We knew what we were in for and we didn't come out ready. And, when you go down 21-0 to Rockcastle in the first quarter, it's hard to come up out of that."
