A 37-yard scamper has never felt so good for senior quarterback Lem Wash.

Rinsing the taste of its 36-35 loss to Maize on Oct. 16 was one reason, but it was the first time that Derby had scored on an opening drive this fall.

It was the first of six rushing touchdowns between Wash and sophomore running back Dylan Edwards, sparking a 48-10 rout of visiting Maize South (4-3). It was the inaugural matchup between the two schools, coming after its AVCTL-I foe joined the division this year.

It was quite a statement for Derby, who was playing its first and only regular season home game of 2020.
