High school football: Washington routs Lexington, improves to 10-0
It was business as usual for Washington on Friday night.
The second-ranked Warriors earned a 55-6 victory at Lexington, improving to 10-0 for the first time since 2006.
Washington, which is 7-0 in District 2A-7, was in control throughout the game. Star running back Lance Spaulding had 14 carries for 166 yards and three touchdowns in the first half against the Bulldogs (6-4, 5-2).
Washington has won by at least 30 points in nine games this season. Coach Brad Beller said the Warriors’ commitment to achieving their goals has set them apart from his previous teams.
“You can’t get to all those goals – even the short-term goals – without practicing well and preparing well and playing well each week,” Beller said. “They’ve done that throughout this year.”
Washington will host Comanche (6-4, 4-3 District 2A-8) on Friday night in the first round of the playoffs, while Lexington travels to Lindsay (8-2, 6-1 District 2A-8).
