Because of a quirk in the schedule, Perry Hall's game Friday night was the last home matchup it will have for a month.
The Gators were intent not to squander the opportunity.
Senior quarterback Reece Wiseman completed 13 of 20 passes for 280 yards and four touchdowns, helping Perry Hall score 45 straight points in a 53-12 win over Baltimore County rival Parkville before a huge homecoming crowd in this week's Ravens RISE High School Football Showdown.
"Once we start clicking, offensively we have a lot of weapons," Gators coach Keith Robinson said. "We've got a good trigger man."
The strong-armed Wiseman, who has drawn significant interest from several colleges at the Football Championship Subdivision level, spent the night throwing the ball all over the field, usually to receivers running free in the secondary.
Early, however, it was the Knights (2-2) who took it to Perry Hall.
Taking advantage of three defensive penalties and a tipped pass for a first down, Parkville drove 72 yards on the opening drive, scoring when receiver Jarius Brooks caught a short pass over the middle, then juked past a defender for a 50-yard touchdown.
The lead would be short-lived.
