Senior kicker Chris Reed broke three school records and tied another to lead the Muhlenberg football team to a 54-3 rout of Kings Point in the season opener for both teams.

With four field goals and six extra points, Reed set school records for points in a game (18) and a career (123) by a kicker, as well as extra points in a career (81). His four field goals tied a school record set in 1986.

The victory was the largest in a season opener for the Mules since 1924,

Six different players scored touchdowns for Muhlenberg, which outgained the Mariners, 347-155. For four of the players – junior Kodi Shay, senior Chris Brown, sophomore Mike Mrkobrad and freshman Michael McCurley – it was their first career touchdown.

Shay’s acrobatic catch of a 3-yard pass from senior Justin Jones gave the Mules an early 7-0 lead. After a Kings Point field goal made it 7-3, the rest of the first-half scoring came courtesy of two Reed field goals, including a 49-yarder that tied for the third-longest in school history.

Jones, who shook off an uneven start to throw for 181 yards, sandwiched a touchdown run and scoring pass to Brown around a 7-yard touchdown run by junior Matt Bernardo in the second half. Reed then kicked a 36-yard field goal to make it 37-3 and set up the Mules’ next touchdown when he sent the kickoff into the end zone, where it was fumbled and recovered by Mrkobrad.

Junior Dan Miller led the Muhlenberg defense with nine tackles, and senior Mike Koth had a pair of sacks. Senior Bo Rodrigues returned an interception 27 yards on the third play of the game to set up the first touchdown.
