The winning streaks just keep on going for Dutch Fork football.

Playing the first home game of the season on Hall of Fame night, the top-ranked Silver Foxes routed Spartanburg 42-13 Friday. 

It was business as usual for the five-time defending Class 5A champions, who amassed 527 total yards of offense to extend their winning streaks:

- 54th straight game without a loss

- 53rd straight win over an in-state team

- 28th straight home game without a loss

- 27th straight home win over in-state teams

Dutch Fork (4-0) scored 42 unanswered points to open the game. Following an 8-yard touchdown run by Jarvis Green, who finished with 118 rushing yards, Davin Patterson and Antonio Williams connected on three straight touchdown pass plays for 47, 65 and 29 yards to close out the first half.
