Peetz and Briggsdale scored a combined 186 points in their game on Saturday, setting the state record for points in a game by two teams.

Peetz beat Briggsdale, 101-85, in a 6-man game.

"I'm flabbergasted — have no idea what to say," Peetz coach Scott Sorensen told Colorado Preps. "I've never been a part of this since I've been here."

The previous record was set by Hugo and Vona in a 176-6 Hugo win in 1930.

Peetz led 24-19 after the first quarter, and 54-27 at halftime. It was 87-59 at the end of three. The 61 combined points in the third quarter are the third-most in state history.

Additionally, each half of the game set a record for combined points in a game by the two teams. The first half, which saw Peetz and Briggsdale score 85 points, eclipsed the old record of 75 points. Then, the two teams broke that new record by scoring 101 combined points in the second half.

"I don't like being a part of that as a defensive coordinator and saying I was part of that, at all, but the 101 looks good," Sorensen said with a laugh.

"Our offenses looked great out there, and our defenses looked terrible," he added. "Both teams."

Peetz star Bryson Long rushed for 256 yards and six touchdowns. Cooper White had 116 yards and three touchdowns.

Peetz only threw the ball nine times in the game, but Zachary White had two passing scores, and Cooper White threw another.
