The Francis Scott Key football team looked every bit as good as its unblemished record might suggest on the road Friday against Century.
The Eagles (3-0, 5-0) built a 28-3 lead by halftime and never looked back on the way to a 41-3 victory over the Knights (1-1, 1-3). Senior Jaeden Heiser had a huge game, scoring four receiving touchdowns that were all 20 yards or more, while quarterback Jarren Rutter (four passing scores, one rushing) and receiver Austin Schemm also found the endzone.
Heiser kicked off the scoring with 6:45 left in the first quarter on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Rutter. Later in the first quarter, Rutter made it 14-0 with a one-yard quarterback sneak.
Century got on the board with a field goal in the second quarter, but FSK answered with two more touchdowns from Heiser before halftime. One score came on a 70-yard pass from Ben Stevens, who took the ball on an end-around and then found Heiser down the right sideline with just over two minutes left in the half.
Then, on the next Century possession, Heiser intercepted a pass on defense. With just under a minute left on the clock, he then caught his third score on a 24-yard pass from Rutter to make it 28-3.
The big game through the air continued in the second half, as Rutter found Heiser again for a 28-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. FSK wrapped up the scoring in the fourth on a 65-yard touchdown pass from Rutter to Schemm.
