10/31/2007

SMITH CENTER, Kan. -- Smith Center scored 72 points in the
first quarter of a high school football game Tuesday night on the
way to an 83-0 win over Plainville, according to a report in the
Salina, Kan., Journal.

Smith Center forced six turnovers in the first quarter as it
racked up what is believed to be a record for points in a quarter
by a high school team, the paper reported. The previous record was
66 by Prescott, Ariz., in 1925.

The defending state champion has outscored its opponents 640-0
so far this season, including a 69-0 win over Plainville earlier
this year.
