WINDHAM — It was a perfect storm for the Red Storm.

Scarborough High’s high-powered offense got rolling early and overwhelmed undermanned Windham 66-7 Friday night. The Red Storm scored 52 points in the first half, using multiple big plays from an assortment of players.

Zoltan Panyi threw touchdown passes to three different receivers, running back Owen Garrard scored two touchdowns, and wide receiver Cody Dudley scored on three long touchdown runs.

“We’re really proud of how we came out,” said Garrard, who rushed for 87 yards on eight carries. “We really just wanted to come out here and fire off the ball and get it going from the first snap, and I think we did that tonight.”

Scarborough is now 5-1 in Class A South, while the Eagles, playing without six starters on both sides of the balls because of injuries or other reasons, dropped to 3-3 in Class A North.

The Red Storm, averaging 47.2 points entering the game, showed why they are so hard to contain.

“That’s probably as good as it’s been,” said Scarborough Coach Lance Johnson. “Getting chunks of yardage, throwing the ball, running the ball, bunch of different guys catching it, bunch of guys running it.

“People have to defend the whole field, the width of the field and the length of the field. We have speed all over the field.”

It started on the first series. Panyi, who was 8 of 9 for 133 yards, completed two 8-yard passes to get the ball to the Windham 38. Garrard then carried the ball on four consecutive plays, the last one a 22-yard touchdown run in which he dragged at least five Windham defenders the final 5 yards into the end zone. Jeremy Sendrowski rushed for the conversion, and it was 8-0.

Sendrowski returned a punt 33 yards to set up the next score – a perfectly-thrown 37-yard pass to Jaquan Seme, who made a fingertip catch in the end zone. Liam McDonnell made it 15-0 with the PAT.

The Red Storm got a safety on the next defensive series when the snap on fourth down went out of the end zone.

Three plays after the ensuing free kick, Dudley ran 45 yards to make it 24-0 with 3:20 still remaining in the first quarter.

“Come out and keep the pedal on the floor,” said Panyi. “Keep scoring.”

And they did. After another Windham punt, Scarborough drove 40 yards in three plays, with Panyi throwing a 29-yard touchdown pass to the speedy Jarett Flaker to make it 31-0.

A Windham fumble on the kickoff was recovered by Sendrowski at the 11. Panyi threw to Reece Lagerquist for another touchdown – just 12 seconds after Flaker’s TD.

Garrard added a 19-yard touchdown run and Dudley scored on a 48-yard run to make it 52-0.

Dudley gained 139 yards on just three carries, his final one a 46-yard touchdown in the third.

Windham got its touchdown on a 1-yard plunge by Treva Valliere on the last play of the first half.

“They’re very talented,” said Windham Coach Matt Perkins. “And our kids played hard. When the other team is just better, all you can ask of them is to give everything they’ve got. And they did. They showed some character.”
