Cromwell - The Valley Regional/Old Lyme football team gave coach Tim King his 100th career victory, beating Cromwell 49-2 Friday night.
Valley Regional (8-0) is closing in on a berth in the Class M playoffs, which would be their third (2010, 2011) in the last four years. King, in his 16th season, appreciates the milestone.
"It does mean something to me,'' said King. "There had been times years ago where I never thought I'd get to the .500 mark. But we've had some great teams the last couple of years."
Phil Cohen was 7-for-11 passing with three touchdowns and 120 yards and Justin Cheverier ran for three touchdowns and 82 yards on eight carries for Valley.
Chris Jean Pierre had touchdown catches of 25 and 30 yards, Dave Peck caught a 49-yard touchdown pass and returned an interception 27 yards for another score and Jare Roche was 7-for-7 on extra points.
