It should be noted, however, that Smith Center only went on to score 14 more points the rest of the game. By the way, 640-0? Shouldn't that team move up a division?
The Salina, Kansas, Journal says 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 said the previous record was 66 set in Arizona by Prescott High School in 1925.
Smith Center has outscored its opponents 640-0 so far this season. That includes a 69-0 win earlier this year over Plainville High, the same team it beat last night.
