KANSAS HIGH SCHOOL TEAM SCORES 72 FIRST QTR POINTS: The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports that “the football team at Smith Center High School in Smith Center, Kansas, scored 72 points in the first quarter of a game last night which it won 86-0.”
The AP cites a SALINA (KS) JOURNAL report that said Smith Center forced six turnovers in the first quarter against Plainville as it recorded what is thought to be a record for points in a quarter by a high school team.MAX PREPS also notes that Smith Center has outscored its opponents 640-0 so far this season. And here’s some video of the squad.
The WICHITA EAGLE had a preview of the Smith Center-Plainville game yesterday, which was the first round of the Kansas high school playoffs. A quote from the Plainville coach before the game: “It would help our season if we could just score on them. We’re sitting at 5-4 and they might beat us by 70 points. But if we can score, it’s going to make our kids feel good about themselves.“They might score 70 points? Oops.
