If Lincoln had put up another lopsided 40-nothing victory over Tottenville I would have bumped it to the No. 1 spot this week, and at halftime that looked possible, but ultimately their impressive win was not impressive enough to forget that Erasmus Hall is the reigning city champs. At this point E-Hall might stay on top until the two teams face each other on Oct. 18.

(Previous rankings — Week 1, Week 2)

1. Erasmus Hall (3-0, LW: 1): E-Hall had three players rushing for over 300 yards as Elijah Davis led with 136 yards and two touchdowns, Curtis Samuel ran for 116 yards and a TD, and Kahlil Lewin ran for 90 and a TD in a 42-0 blowout of Campus Magnet. Next week: at Lehman.

2. Lincoln (3-0, LW: 2): Lincoln’s win might not have propelled it to No. 1, but it was impressive against a good Tottenville team nonetheless. Antoine Holloman rushed for 129 yards and three touchdowns, Javon Moore threw for 190 yards, ran for 45, and had a rushing touchdown. Khendell Puryear had an interception and Thomas Holley had three sacks. Next week: vs New Utrecht.

3. Poly Prep (3-0, LW: 3): Chris Parker rushed for 235 yards and four touchdowns, Brenden Femiano rushed for 168 yards and three touchdowns as Poly Prep beat Niagara Academy 53-24. A big test coming up for this team as it faces Hun School next week, a team that has beaten Poly in each of the last two years. Next week: vs Hun School.

4. New Utrecht (3-0, LW: 4): Jaleel Brown had 120 yards rushing and two touchdowns and Richard Wright had 44 yards receiving, seven yards running and a touchdown as New Utrecht continued their perfect season with a win over Susan Wagner. The Utes may drop a few spots next week as they are unlikely to stay undefeated.  Next week: at Lincoln.

5. Fort Hamilton (3-0, LW: 5): A big win against Curtis as Sharif Legree threw for 131 yards and Isaiah Washington ran for 36 yards and two touchdowns. Juan Tejada had an interception, a touchdown and a safety on defense. Next week: vs Sheepshead Bay.

6. Boys and Girls (2-1, LW: 6): Things went much better for Boys High in its second actual game of the season in a 30-6 victory over Truman. Dashawn Brice connected on 10 of 12 pass attempts for 94 yards and a touchdown, Brandon Harding ran for 124 yards, and Hollis Superville had a total of 139 yards and three touchdowns. You get the feeling that the more experience this team gets the better it will be. Next week: vs Canarsie.

7. Bishop Ford (2-1. LW: 8): Bishop Ford had a big third quarter in a nice 34-18 victory over Christ the King. Dante Aiken ran for 220 yards and three touchdowns, Rodney Gonzales rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown. Justice Seales had the other TD. Jevon Smith had two sacks. Next week: at Cardinal Spellman.

8. Canarsie (2-1, LW: 9): Canarsie rebounded from a tough loss against New Utrecht with a tough victory over Flushing. Antonio Snell threw for 109 yards and a touchdown. He also had 82 yards rushing. Ramshar Clarke ran for 30 yards and a TD. Next week: at Boys and Girls.

9. Sheepshead Bay (1-2, LW: N/A): Back on the list after being knocked off last week, the Sharks had an impressive 32-17 win against Brooklyn Tech. Quarterback Imani Vincent ran for 81 yards, two touchdowns and a big interception late in the game. Stephan Garrick ran for 114 yards and a TD and Jim Campbell ran for 61 yards and a TD. Joshua McClean had 81 yards rushing as well. Next week: at Fort Hamilton.

10. Midwood (2-1, LW: N/A): Midwood hasn’t exactly had the toughest schedule to this point, but a 2-1 start is still impressive. Brandon French ran for 171 yards and two touchdowns, Nicholas Falzone threw for 85 yards and two TDs. Darryl Robinson and Wesley Joseph each caught a TD. Next week: vs Truman.
