Washington 67, Ft. Zumwalt South 21
Kyle Summers and Washington’s uptempo, spread offense could not be stopped.
The Blue Jays (3-2, 1-1) scored 50 points in the second half and blew out Ft. Zumwalt South in football action Friday at Washington High School, 67-21.
Summers, a junior running back for the Blue Jays, rushed for 300 yards on 17 carries and scored three touchdowns to lead the way.
“It was just a lot of hard work. I did the best I could,” Summers said after the game. “The linemen up front blocked great. Our offense dominated the whole night.”
Blue Jays’ quarterback Luke Hasenjaeger was 10-17 passing for 158 yards and one touchdown.
The Washington offense, which had seven rushing touchdowns in the game, moved the ball at will in the second half, scoring touchdowns on six of its seven possessions.

Luke Hoemann then booted a 35-yard field goal with three seconds remaining on the clock.
The Blue Jays dominated the second half, outscoring Ft. Zumwalt South, 50-7.
Washington’s offense was so hot that it burned out the circuits in the scoreboard, which did not function during the second half.
The Blue Jays made the score 24-14 on a one-yard touchdown run by Summers.
Phinney then scored his second touchdown of the game on a 17-yard run. He also scored the two-point conversion to increase the lead to 32-14.
South scored for the final time when Simon and Owens connected again for an eight-yard touchdown pass to make the score 32-21.
Summers added two more touchdowns late in the third quarter on runs of 27 and eight yards to increase Washington’s lead to 46-21 after three quarters.
In the fourth quarter, Washington’s Caleb Curran scored two touchdowns on runs of nine and five yards.
The defense also got in on the fun when Dilan Bollmann returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown.
Ft. Zumwalt South senior Chase Abbington, a University of Missouri recruit, did not play on offense from his running back position because of an injured shoulder. He did play on defense.
Washington returns to action Friday for a week six contest at Vianney.
