The Oakfield-Alabama football team scored a school record 42 points in the first quarter and kicker John Fisher tied Matt Waldron's single game scoring mark for a kicker with nine extra points as the Hornets thumped Alexander 63-14.
O-A added 21 points in the second quarter before calling off the dogs.
A.J. Kehlenbeck completed 4-of-6 attempts for 72 yards and three touchdowns in the game. He also had a rushing touchdown.
"A.J. looked real sharp throwing the ball," O-A coach John Dowd said. "He had a nice night for a quarterback in our offense. We came out firing pretty hard."
Joe Natalizia made his first start at wingback and had a solid day, rushing for 94 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. He also caught a TD pass.
Fullback Brad Riner rushed for just 56 yards in the game, but scored a touchdown on the ground, through the air and on defense, when he returned an interception 67 yards for a score.
Tim Smith rushed for 63 yards on six carries and also caught a 30-yard touchdown pass.
Tyler Kowalcyzk made seven tackles - including two for a loss - and returned an interception six yards for a score.
Alexander falls to 0-3 while Oakfield-Alabama improves to 3-0 and faces Notre Dame next weekend.
"Notre Dame is an outstanding team," Dowd said. "They are a little more athletic than we are, but we are a little bit bigger than they are. It will be a nice test for both teams."
