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.
