The SCHS football team came out strong, but faded in the second half of a 40-9 loss at Scott County Friday.
The Rockets stormed out to a touchdown on the game's opening possession. Matt Page hit Tavis Elzy on a 13-yard pass to get the Rockets on the board. The quarterback hit Elzy earlier in the drive for 35 yards to set up the score. After the extra point missed, Shelby held a 6-0 lead.
The Rockets then recovered a Scott County fumble on Cardinals' 32, turning that into a 27-yard field goal and a 9-0 lead.
But Scott County then scored 40 unanswered points through the second, third and fourth quarters.
