Scoring Out of This World: Meadville 107, Dubois 90

DuBoisMeadville[1]DUBOIS, Pa. ( – 107-90.

Really, what more can be said? That was the final score of the Meadville-DuBois high-school football game Friday night at DuBois’ Mansell Stadium with the visitors coming out on top in what has to go down as one of the wildest offensive shows in modern high-school football history.

The 107 points were so many that they didn’t even fit on the scoreboard, which had to revert back to “07” in the final score line under “guests”.

Journey Brown had a season in one night rushing for a state-record 720 yards and scored 10 rushing touchdowns, one shy of the state record for touchdowns scored in a game of 11 set way back in 1925 by Shippensburg’s Galen Warner.

Brown scored five touchdowns in each half and found the end zone runs of 76, 49, 1, 58, 25, 65, 18, 47, 93 and 66 yards. He scored on one-third of his 30 carries, and helped Meadville run for 1,004 yards, which was the Bulldogs total yardage for the game as they went 0-for-3 passing.

Brown shattered the previous state record for rushing yards in a game of 500 set by Alex Cooley of Eastern York in 2012. In fact, Brown’s touchdown runs alone were just two yards shy of Cooley’s mark.

While Brown was setting state records on the ground, DuBois’ sophomore quarterback Matt Miller, making his first career varsity start, was setting state and national records of his own.

He threw 10 touchdown passes, breaking the state record for TD passes while tying the national record held by four other players including former West Virginia quarterback and Pittsburgh Pirates draft choice J.R. House.

Miller also threw for what is now believed to be a state- and national-record 788 yards (on 31 of 54) breaking the previous mark of 746 set in 2000 by by David Koral of Pacific Palisades (Calif.). The 788 yards broke the one-year old state and District 9 record of 614 yards set by Redbank Valley’s Jake Dougherty, and it now means that the top three passing yardage marks in Pennsylvania high school history reside in District 9, as Dougherty had topped the previous mark set by Brockway’s Derek Buganza (594 in 2009). Miller added a rushing touchdown for the Beavers.
