Running back Joe Protheroe scored four rushing touchdowns and had 262 yards on just 15 carries to help lead the Eagles to a dominating win over visiting Hayward.

The Eagles had a 42-7 lead by halftime much to the delight of their raucous homecoming crowd. Michael Protheroe, Jesse Medrano, Curtis Grant and Tanner Wraa each ran for a touchdown for Clayton Valley (4-1).

Hayward tried to bounce back from an early 14-0 defecit when Jevin Odom caught a pass from Marjani Ellison and flew down the sideline for an 80-yard touchdown, cutting the Eagles lead in half. But that was as close as the Farmers would get, as Clayton Valley scored the next 41 points to put the game well out of reach.

Late in the fourth quarter, David Jones scored from 1 yard out for Hayward (2-3).

Michael Kelly and Joe Protheroe had interceptions for the Eagles, and Ruben Rincon recovered a fumble, showing Clayton Valley's prowess on the defensive side of the football.
