The football score brought forth plenty of jokes about basketball from all corners of social media on Friday night.

It’s an easy joke to make considering Puyallup beat South Kitsap 77-60 in a South Puget Sound League 4A game in Port Orchard, reports the Kitsap Sun.

When the cloud finally settled at Kitsap Bank Stadium, a state passing record was broken.

Puyallup’s Nathaniel Holcomb threw 10 touchdown passes, breaking the previous 11-man record shared by Brian Lindgren (1998) of DeSales in Walla Walla and Jordan Kitna (2014) of Lincoln.

The overall state record is 10 TD passes in a game as three eight-man football players accomplished the feat: Lummi’s Andrew Jefferson (2005), Tri-Cities Prep’s Will Hoppes (2009) and Lacrosse-Washtucna’s Jake Aune (2011).

Holcomb had four TD passes in the third quarter as the Vikings (3-1 league and overall) finally pulled away from the Wolves (0-4, 0-3) with a 35-7 quarter.

Holcomb was 33 of 53 for 451 yards. He has 25 touchdown passes in four games and 1,581 passing yards.
