Grady, Mays and South Atlanta destroyed their opponents Friday night, defeating them by a combined score of 161-14.

Grady (3-1), ranked No. 10 in the Atlanta Journal Constitution/Georgia High School Football Daily Class AAAAA Top 10, pummeled Lithia Springs (0-4) of Douglas County, 74-14. Several Grey Knights had big games. Leading the way was senior quarterback Caylin Newton, who threw five touchdown passes – two each to Kemari Averett and Aaron Hudson Jr., one to Christian Jones – and ran for another score. Christian also had a punt return for a touchdown and Jeffery Black ran for two touchdowns. Grady led 41-0 after the first quarter and 68-0 at halftime. Still, the 74 points was not a school record. Grady beat North Springs 76-6 in 2010.

Mays (3-1) pounded another team from Douglas County, New Manchester (0-4), 51-0. It was the first-ever meeting between the two schools. The Raider defense, which had yielded at least 28 points in every game so far this year, earned its first shutout of the season.

South Atlanta (2-3) posted its second consecutive shutout with a 36-0 win over Forest Park (0-5) of Clayton County. Last week, the Hornets shutout Clarkston (0-5), 57-0.

Here’s how the other APS teams faired over the weekend:

Carver 43, Maynard Jackson 7
Carver (3-1) came out on top in the first ever meeting between the two schools. Maynard Jackson is now 1-3 on the season.

Newnan 48, Washington 14
The Bulldogs (1-3) fell behind 14-0 just 30 seconds into the game, and could never catch up.

Chattahoochee (Fulton County) 21, North Atlanta 17
The Warriors (1-3) lost another close one, this time on the road in Alpharetta. Last week, North Atlanta was defeated 14-10, by Dunwoody.

Westside-Macon 42, B.E.S.T. Academy 6
The Eagles (1-4) trailed 35-6 in the first half and failed to mount a comeback.
