The SCHS football team went 0-3 in the district during the regular season but got the last laugh after beating Madison Central 37-20 Friday to win the Class 6A District 8 title.
The Rockets (8-4) led 17-14 at the half and then outscored the Indians (7-5) 20-0 in the third quarter on their way to the win.
SCHS quarterback Alex Matthews threw for more than 450 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the win.
It was a far cry from the more 500 yards and nine touchdowns Matthews had in the first-round win over Scott County, but the senior wasn't disappointed.
