Webb City (15-0) scored 49 points in the first half Saturday, also tying the record, as the Cardinals dominated their way to the school's ninth state title.
Webb City running back Maddison Johnson ran for two touchdowns and returned a punt 50 yards for a third to lead the first-half outburst. Quarterback Scott Roderique also threw two touchdowns to Austin Daniel.
The Cardinals took a 56-0 lead early in the third quarter and removed many of their offensive starters during the first series of that period.
