David Williams wasted no time making his impression as he dominated in his Imhotep debut with three touchdowns, leading the Panthers to an easy nonleague 68-13 win at Strath Haven on Friday night at Germantown.

The area's premier rusher, Williams finished with 133 yards on 13 carries. Two of his touchdowns came in the first quarter. On the first play of the third quarter, he broke free for a 47-yard touchdown.

He played sparingly in the third quarter and rested for the entire fourth.

Williams transferred this year from West Catholic, where he was coached by current Imhotep head coach Albie Crosby.

"Strath Haven is a good program; to say I expected this I'd have to say no," Crosby said. "But, I was looking forward to David coming out here and having an impressive game."

Central Bucks West 31, Upper Dublin 0 - C.B. West recorded its first shutout in a decade as it blanked visiting Upper Dublin. Brian Steele recorded seven tackles, Sam Piccone had five and Kevin Dugan added an interception.

Cody Riemenchneider led the offense with 158 passing yards and three touchdowns.

Jenkintown 28, Southern 6 - Tom Kinniry rushed for 113 yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead Jenkintown past host Southern.

Kinniry rumbled for a four-yard touchdown in the second quarter and added a 29-yard touchdown to give the Drakes a 22-6 lead at halftime. Earlier in the quarter, he connected with Ned Hull for a 27-yard touchdown.

Pat Durkin, who finished with 61 rushing yards, added a 10-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Roxborough 22, Edison 6 - Junior running back Sharif Harper's two rushing touchdowns provided the difference as Roxborough topped visiting Edison.

Harper scored from 17 yards out in the first quarter and then reached the end zone on a 2-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Senior Isiah King recorded a pair of two point conversions, once as a wideout and later in the game as a quarterback.

Great Valley 26, Phoenixville 13 - Chris Geiss scored four touchdowns as Great Valley scored 26 straight points en route to easing past Phoenixville.

Geiss aired out a 48-yard touchdown and sneaked in a 1-yard touchdown in the first half. In the second half, he rushed for an 8-yard touchdown and threw a 26-yard touchdown to Steven Praplaski.

Emmaus 40, Germantown 0 - Delane Hard's 63 receiving yards weren't enough as Germantown was shut down at Emmaus.

Episcopal Academy 44, Del-Val Charter 0 - Adam Strouss showed his versatility to beat a team through the air and on the ground as he led host Episcopal Academy over Del-Val Charter.

In the first half, Strouss rushed for a 25-yard touchdown and later a 12-yard touchdown. In the second half, he found Ian Strain for a 5-yard touchdown.

Central 40, High School of the Future 8 - Walt Pegues set the tone with a 63-yard opening kick return and Central rolled from there. He later turned a 5-yard pass into a 20-yard touchdown.

Larry Pelzer opened the second half with an 84-yard kick-return touchdown and sparked Bok's 26-0 win over visiting Dobbins.

Amir Bostic capped off the scoring when he recorded a safety in the third quarter.
