Adams, Strath Haven roll over Harriton
By Matt Smith
Strath Haven’s big play offense was too much for Harriton.
The Panthers had seven scoring plays of at least 45 yards and rolled to a 63-6 Central League Class 5A victory over the Rams on senior night at George L. King Field Friday night.
Strath Haven (2-1) scored on runs of 46, 47, 55, 72 and 76 yards, added a 57-yard touchdown through the air and had a 45-yard pick six.
Jaris Adams set the tone for the Panthers. The 6-1, 185-pound senior running back/cornerback scored twice in a 2 minute, 45 second span in the first quarter, once on offense and once on defense, as the Panthers jumped out early and never looked back in rebounding from a 33-27 loss to Marple Newtown.
Adams scored on a one-yard run to open the scoring with 7:42 to play in the first half and then less than three minutes later returned an interception 45 yards for a TD. The Panthers were off and running. Adams scored again on a 76-yard run in the second quarter to extend Strath Haven’s lead to 28-0.
