SPSL records revisited: Kentlake, Puyallup play one for the ages

Even three days later, both football coaches were still having difficulty realizing what happened Friday night.

“I am still worn out,” Puyallup High’s Gary Jeffers said.

“It is a difficult thing to come to grips with,” Kentlake High’s Chris Paulson said.

In game that that went well into the late night, Kentlake beat Puyallup, 76-55, in a South Puget Sound League crossover game at French Field in Kent.

A few SPSL single-game records were set:

* The 131 combined points eclipsed the previous mark of 128, set by Federal Way and Rogers in 2003 (Rogers won, 66-62).

* Kentlake’s 10 PAT kicks tied the league record set by Curtis (1991, 2010).

* In a losing effort, Puyallup quarterback Brendon Illies passed for 396 yards, and rushed for 176. His 572 total yards erased the SPSL record of 497, set by Kent-Meridian’s David Jones in 2010 against Tahoma.
