All-purpose player Harold Lee was at it again Thursday night.

Lee ran 65 yards for one touchdown and returned an interception 87 yards for another as Auburn rolled to a 35-14 victory over Kent-Meridian in a South Puget Sound League North 4A football game at Auburn Memorial Stadium.

It was the sixth straight victory for the Trojans, who retained the rivalry's Taylor Trophy.

Auburn, 6-1 in league and 6-1 overall, faces second-ranked Federal Way (7-0, 7-0), the powerhouse from the SPSL South, at Troy Field next Friday.

Demontra McNealy scored on runs of 6 and 33 yards for Auburn, which broke open the game with a 21-point third quarter. Darnell Hagans added a 16-yard TD run.

Quincy Carter scored from 10 yards out and Denny Nguyen found the end zone from the 2 for the Royals (2-5, 2-5).

K-M hosts Mount Rainier next Friday at French Field.
