It was a night of speed, to say the least, Friday as the Shelby County High School football team raced past Breckinridge County for a 55-6 win in the opening round of Class 4A football playoffs.
The Rockets (10-1 and ranked No. 2 in 4A) posted 34 points in the first quarter and went on to lead 48-0 at the half to advance to the second round where county rival Collins awaits this Friday.
“We were able to utilize our speed,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “We had an advantage there and it showed.”
