The host San Ramon Valley High football team scored 42 points in the second quarter to rout Antioch 66-0 in the first round of the North Coast Section Division I playoffs on Friday.
Thirteenth-seeded Antioch (6-5) trailed just 9-0 after the first quarter, but quarterback Cameron Birse threw for 255 yards and four scores before halftime as San Ramon Valley took a 51-0 lead at the break.
The Wolves now take on the winner of Saturday's game between Castro Valley and Amador Valley in the quarterfinals next week.
"After the first quarter we just got in the flow of the game," San Ramon Valley coach Mark Kessler said. "We kinda hit the bricks in the first quarter with a turnover, but the kids battled back and did a great job."
The Wolves (6-5) did it with big plays in the air during the first half. Justin Bangay was responsible for two of those big plays, one of them a 96-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter that made it 30-0. His only other catch was a 40-yard score.
Ryan Dunn also had two touchdowns in the first half, doing it on both sides of the ball with a 20-yard interception return and an 18-yard reception for a score.
For San Ramon Valley, which made the NCS Division I finals a year ago, it's the seventh time in the last eight years it has won at least one postseason game. The only year in that span the Wolves did not make it out of the first round was 2009, when they lost to Pittsburg in the first round of
This was Antioch's second straight appearance in the postseason. Last year, the Panthers lost 19-13 to rival Pittsburg in the first round.
