Records fell like autumn leaves in Friday’s Long Island Class IV championship game, won by Babylon, 27-26.

Here’s the scorecard:

-- Babylon broke the Suffolk County single-season scoring record of 500 points set by St. Anthony’s in 2003 on Jake Carlock’s 10-yard TD reception with 5:37 left in the third quarter. They finished with 510 points in 12 games.

-- With 10 receptions, Babylon’s Jake Carlock broke the LIC single-game record of eight held by four different players, the last being Eddie Robinson of Lawrence in 2011. Carlock’s teammate Ray Wardell also broke the old LIC record, catching nine.

-- Carlock and Wardell allowed Babylon quarterback Nick Santorelli to easily shatter the school record for most completions in a game, a modest 14 as the Panthers’ traditionally have been a run-first offense. However, on Friday, Santorelli completed 26 of 41 passes for 286 yards, all school records, as was Carlock’s reception total.

-- Roosevelt’s Johnnie Akins, despite being limited because of a turf toe injury suffered in the Nassau IV title game, managed to break the Nassau record for yards rushing in a season, set by Anthony Brunetti of Holy Trinity, who ran for 2,541 set in 2011. Akins rushed for 71 yards on 11 carries and finished the 2013 season with 2,593 yards.
