Top performances

• West Seneca East improved to 2-0 with a school-record point total as it routed visiting Lake Shore, 57-0.

• Cameren Smith of Lackawanna ran for 118 yards and had a key late interception as the Steelers won at Tonawanda, 18-6, in the opening game of the new Clint Small Stadium.

• Rodney Turner of Depew scored three rushing touchdowns during a 16-carry, 104-yard day as the Wildcats beat East Aurora, 38-6.

Week Two

A quick look ahead at some key games next weekend:

• A very intriguing nonleague game on Friday has Jamestown playing at All High Stadium against South Park (7 p.m.). Both teams have won their first two games, with South Park scoring a major victory at Iroquois this weekend.

• On Friday at 7:30, Salamanca is at Fredonia in a Class C matchup of last year’s divisional winner playing at last year’s Class C runner-up.

• A major matchup in Class AA that many might not have thought was going to be this big at this point has Frontier at Lockport (Saturday, 2 p.m.). Both are 2-0, with Lockport coming off its big win at Orchard Park.

• Bishop Timon-St. Jude and St. Mary’s pair up on the first day of Monsignor Martin Association league action (Saturday, 1 p.m.).

• Canisius hosts Walsh Jesuit of Ohio (Saturday, 2 p.m.), a team it beat last year on the road in what was arguably its toughest game during its landmark undefeated season.
