Lamont Harris ran himself straight to the top of a couple of South Jersey leader boards Friday night. The St. Augustine senior carried the ball 27 times for 231 yards and four scores as the Hermits hit the road and defeated Absegami, 48-6, in a Cape-Atlantic American football game. Harris, the first South Jersey player to top 1,000 yards on the ground this season, leads the area with 1,240 rushing yards. The effort also gave Harris 19 touchdowns, moving him past Jake Parola of idle Shawnee into first place in South Jersey.

Central Bucks South wanted to ease the burden on Josh Adams. The Notre Dame-bound halfback entered the week third in Southeastern Pennsylvania with 1,358 yards and 22 touchdowns for The Inquirer's 18th-ranked team. The Titans fell into an early hole against 10th-ranked Pennridge on Friday night, though, and the man they needed to ease off led the charge back. Adams ran for three touchdowns, including a go-ahead, 40-yard sprint in the fourth quarter, to lead Central Bucks South to a 28-21 home win in a Suburban One National matchup.

SAYREVILLE, N.J. - Sayreville's mayor and Borough Council members Tuesday night defended a decision by the school district superintendent to abolish the high school football season because of a hazing scandal that has caught nationwide attention. "I thought Dr. Labbe did a courageous thing," Mayor Kennedy O'Brien said at the council meeting, referring to Superintendent Richard Labbe. "It took true strength of character. " He said it was time for Sayreville, a Middlesex County community of about 40,000 people southwest of New York City, to begin healing.

One quarter was in the books, and one of the biggest football games in St. Joseph history looked like a disaster in the making. The Wildcats were down by two scores at Steubenville in Ohio. The offense couldn't move the ball, the defense allowed two fourth-and-long conversions, and the team appeared to be caught up in the capacity crowd at "Death Valley," Steubenville's 10,000-seat stadium. However, St. Joseph settled down, Salaam Horne scored three touchdowns, and the Wildcats (5-0)

For the most part, the Imhotep Charter football team doesn't bother kicking extra points any more. When the Panthers reach the end zone - something that happens pretty often - they just go for two. But during a 57-6 rout of Dobbins, at the Northwest Super Site, the Panthers had a good reason to try a point after. It allowed them to set two Public League records within the span of seconds Saturday. Andre Dreuitt-Parks became the Public League's all-time passing leader on a 50-yard touchdown pass to D.J. Moore in the third quarter.

A shootout turned into a defensive struggle and Jesse Streb's second-quarter touchdown reception proved to be a surprising winner as Cherokee left Williamstown with a 41-33 victory in a West Jersey American football game Friday night. When Streb streaked into the end zone to complete a 66-yard pass play from Evan Powell, few could imagine its deciding the game. The Chiefs, ranked fourth in South Jersey by The Inquirer, were minutes away from entering the locker room with a 34-26 lead that looked anything but safe.

For as long as any of the players on the field had been in high school Friday night, Plymouth Whitemarsh had dominated the Suburban One League American Conference. The Colonials had won 25 straight league games dating to 2010, and three straight championships. Upper Dublin finally ended that consecutive-game run. Kaleif Lee scored three touchdowns, and John Lee had a go-ahead score with 38.1 seconds left to propel Upper Dublin to a 34-28 home win over Plymouth Whitemarsh. Upper Dublin, The Inquirer's 23d-ranked team in Southeastern Pennsylvania, lost, 28-23, to Plymouth Whitemarsh last year.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 6 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Eli Manning, QB, Giants at Eagles. No secondary has surrendered more TD passes than the Eagles' (13), and Manning comes into this prime-time matchup on fire. With first-round draft pick Odell Beckham finally on the field, Manning is fully armed with a deep and explosive receiving corps. Branden Oliver, RB, Chargers at Raiders. Congrats if you scooped him up off the waiver wire. Oliver may get only a week or two as San Diego's lead horse, but this week's matchup is as sweet as it gets.

AS WE REACH the midway point of the first FBS season with a playoff, the top of the rankings are where they were on Jan. 6: Florida State is first and Auburn is No. 2. But can they remain there? Or at least do enough to get in the inaugural Final Four? The Seminoles host Notre Dame next week and go to Louisville on Oct. 30. They're at Miami on Nov. 15 and host Florida two weeks later, not that either of those rivals are what they were. Then there's the ACC title game in Charlotte against, most likely, Virginia, Georgia Tech or Virginia Tech.

A HIGH SCHOOL football powerhouse in central New Jersey had the remainder of its season canceled due to alleged bullying by team members. School district officials announced that Sayreville War Memorial High will forfeit its remaining six games while police and the Middlesex County prosecutor's office conducts investigations. The school has won three sectional titles over the past 4 years. Neither the prosecutor nor the school district would comment on the case, but ABC News reported that an unnamed local official said younger players were taunted and intimidated by older players and that the behavior often had "sexual overtones.
