There was no on-court celebration in the fourth quarter after Samir Doughty broke Math, Civics and Sciences' single-game scoring record Friday night.

It would have been overkill. The team had stopped play and congratulated the junior guard one quarter earlier, when he scored his 1,000th career point.

Doughty poured in a school-record 45 points to lead MC&S to a 100-50 rout of Delco Christian in the Class A state boys' basketball first round at Southern.

Doughty, who has 1,011 career points, broke Eric Johnson's 2006 record of 42, when he completed a three-point play early in the fourth.

Phil-Mont Christian 76, New Media Charter 65: Zach Doltan (19 points) went 6 for 8 from the foul line in overtime and Osaze Thornton scored all six of his points in the extra session as the Falcons rallied to win at Archbishop Carroll.

Church Farm 59, Lebanon Catholic 38: Tyler Ofray had 22 points, seven rebounds, and three assists, and Aondofa Anyam chipped in 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and three steals to lead the Griffins, who pulled away with a 16-1 run at the start of the fourth quarter, at Cheltenham.

STATE CLASS AAA FIRST ROUND

Archbishop Carroll 57, Manheim Central 35: Derrick Jones scored 17 points, Austin Tilghman added 11 points and seven assists, and Ernest Aflakpui grabbed eight rebounds to propel the Patriots at Garden Spot.

Holy Ghost Prep 65, Bermudian Springs 53: Matt England (21 points) book-ended his game at Cheltenham by scoring eight points in the first quarter and then going 8 for 8 from the foul line in the fourth.

Phila. Electrical 68, Blue Mountain 50: Larenz Thurman had 23 points and eight assists, James Suber pulled down 14 rebounds, and Jihad Barnes dished out six assists to power the Chargers at Archbishop Carroll.

Susquehanna 65, Imhotep Charter 47: Susquehanna's victory at Central Dauphin East ends the Panthers' run of three straight state championships.
