Earlier this month we brought you the story of the Mississippi high school game that ended 82-80 in regulation. Fremont (CA) High School topped that on Friday in its 90-56 win over San Jose Harker (CA).
Yes, 90-56. According to the San Jose Mercury News, the mark bests the California state record of 82, set in 2005 and matched in 2008.
Not only did Fremont better any high school football scoring mark, they also topped the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers, who scored 82 points in a preseason game the night before.
According to the box score provided by MaxPreps, the Firebirds led 50-49 at halftime before winning the second half, 41-6.
The game opened with eight touchdowns in the first quarter as Fremont led 29-28. The teams followed that up with six more scores in the second quarter as Harker won the frame, 22-20.
We're not sure whether Fremont made some excellent defensive halftime adjustments or the Harker offense simply got tired, but the Firebirds pitched a shutout in the third quarter and allowed just six points in the fourth quarter.
At this point it's only a matter of days until a high school team reaches 100 points.
