Jeff Woodward didn’t waste much time Thursday night.

In attendance for Woodward’s milestone night was Andrew Smith who set the previous record of 1,289 points during the 1993 season.

Erik Timko hit for a team-high 23 points and Woodward added 13 in the Pioneer Athletic Conference crossover win. Owen Kropp and Brett Eberly each chipped in with 11 points to help Methacton (9-0 division, 18-1 overall) go 14-0 in league play.
