    Oldham County's offense showed signs of life by "smacking" its opponent, and the defense made "smash mouth football" plays.

    Four Rockets running backs ran for touchdowns with Brandon Davis leading the way with 106 yards on just four carries and Malik Manica netting 104 yards on only eight attempts.
