Eagles running back Joe Protheroe rushed for 267 yards on just six carries and scored three touchdowns as Clayton Valley Charter (5-1, 1-0 Diablo Valley Athletic League) overwhelmed the host Warriors (1-5, 0-1).

Protheroe's touchdown runs went for 51-, 95- and 76-yards. His last carry occurred with 9:50 left in the third quarter.

"Basically, every carry I got, I got to the second level," said Protheroe, whose shortest carry was his first of 12 yards. "I'm blessed with a good line."

Joe Protheroe's brother Michael rushed for two touchdowns and threw for another. Teammate Curtis Grant added two touchdowns, including a 16-yard fumble return that gave the Eagles a two-touchdown lead with 7:52 left in the first quarter.

Ygnacio Valley cut the deficit to 14-6 later in the first quarter with a 5-yard run by Khalil Branch. But on the first play of the next series, Joe Protheroe broke tackles attempts for a 51-yard score, starting a 42-point streak for the Eagles, who led 42-6 at halftime and 63-14 after three quarters.

Warriors quarterback Jamari Pope, who rushed for a pair of second-half scores, had a team-high 115 yards on the ground and passed for 121 yards.
