The points were plentiful on Friday night across the high school football spectrum in South Jersey.

Five local teams scored 42 or more points in their victories, including Cedar Creek's 54-14 win on the road against Holy Spirit.

Buena (56), St. Joseph (56), St. Augustine Prep (45), and Oakcrest (42) lit the scoreboard up early and often.

Hats off to the Mainland Mustangs, who also earned a decisive 26-0 win in Ocean City on our airwaves.

Mike Frankel recaps some of the shootouts from Friday night, and looks ahead to next weekend's biggest games.
