Kentlake coach Chris Paulson had a blast calling the offensive plays Friday in what went down as a historic showing in the South Puget Sound League.
But the linebacker in him, too, shuddered at what took place at French Field as the defending SPSL North champion Falcons beat Puyallup, 76-55.
The teams combined for 131 points, which eclipsed the SPSL single-game scoring mark of 128, set by Rogers and Federal Way in 2003 (Rogers won, 66-62).
Kentlake quarterback Steffin Church threw a school-record nine touchdown passes. Eight of the Falcons’ TDs were plays of 40 yards or longer.
Puyallup quarterback Brandon Illies was no slouch, either, throwing for five TDs, and running for two more.
“You feel like you are unstoppable offensively,” Paulson said. “But the same 11 kids defensively could not seem to stop anybody, either.”
Rogers 28, at Emerald Ridge 17: The Rams took advantage of five Jaguars’ fumbles, including the one that set up Andrew Nelson’s game-winning 1-yard touchdown run with 5:49 to go in the victory at Sparks Stadium.
At Jefferson 27, Kent-Meridian 24: The Raiders scored three touchdowns in a 3:04 span of the fourth quarter to shock the Royals.
Kent-Meridian had one final chance to regain the lead, driving to the Jefferson 23 but quarterback Quincy Carter was intercepted by Phillip Cudros with 1:52 remaining.
Yelm 45, at Stadium 6: Jacob Swilley set the career rushing mark for the Tornados after his 245-yard, four-touchdown effort in a win at Stadium Bowl.
Swilley has 2,641 yards, which breaks the previous mark of 2,603, set in 1971.
Bellarmine Prep 42, at Central Kitsap 7: Sefo Liufau ran for a pair of touchdowns, threw for another and the fifth-ranked Lions cruised at Silverdale Stadium.
At South Kitsap 38, Gig Harbor 25: The Wolves scored a pair of touchdowns in a 23-second span to break open a tight game.

Lincoln 55, at Mount Tahoma 0: Dehonte Hayes had three interceptions for the Abes, including an 83-yard return for a touchdown in the first quarter, and Lincoln remained unbeaten by rolling over the Thunderbirds.

Washington 33, at White River 12: Jordan Mezias threw TD passes of 10 and 26 yards in the second half as the Patriots beat the defending co-champion Hornets.
Sumner 28, at Steilacoom 27: Chase Torgison’s 38-yard touchdown pass to Lokahi Kamau with 6:54 to go proved to be the game-winner, but Sumner’s defense also had a say in the come-from-behind win on the road.
The Sentinels drove to the Sumner 26-yard line, but did not score. And fourth-and-8 pass with 33 seconds remaining fell incomplete to end the threat.
At Charles Wright 35, Life Christian/Seattle Christian 7: Nick Ho’s 35-yard fumble return for a touchdown gave the Tarriers a 28-0 halftime lead, and CWA went on to win.
