If the season opener is any indication, Midland (Texas) Trinity looks like it could be just fine on offense.
Trinity rolled to a 108-66 victory against Loraine on Thursday, the opening night for high school football in Texas.
According to the National Federation record book, the 108 points is four shy of the record set by Paint Rock, Texas, against Novice on Nov. 5, 2010. But the two teams combined for the most points in six-man history with 174. The previous record was set by Claremont and Frederick in South Dakota when Claremont won 94-49 on Sept. 28, 1951.
However, the Midland Reporter-Telegram says the record for two teams is 242 when San Antonio The Winston beat San Antonio Town East 122-120. Midland Trinity lost 124-108 to Fort Davis during the 2011 season, meaning Midland equaled its school record for points on Thursday. That game at the time was the highest-scoring game involving a UIL team, the recognized state association in Texas.
The National Federation record book includes records from games played by teams in the recognized state associations.
Trinity led 38-22 after the first quarter, 68-42 at halftime and 100-58 at the end of the third quarter. The game took nearly four hours to play.
