The San Ramon Valley High football team ended the nonleague portion of its schedule with an exclamation point Friday night.

The Wolves routed visiting Washington 55-8 as junior quarterback Zach Kline passed for 247 yards in a little over two quarters of work, Michael Summers ran for 137 and versatile Trent Peterson had two interceptions and a 35-yard touchdown catch.

Moreover, the San Ramon Valley defensive line was dominant again, limiting the Huskies (0-4) to negative rushing yardage in the first half. Benjamin Teichman had four tackles, a sack and a 1-yard touchdown run.

Peterson's effort epitomized the saying they have for him in the program.

"In Trent we trust," San Ramon Valley coach Mark Kessler said. "We think he's going to be a heck of a player for us. He's been working through some injuries early, and he's really starting to get his legs under him. I think you saw that tonight."

Washington's Nico Ruma ran for 109 yards, all in the second half, and DeAndre Carter had six catches for 69 yards and a 17-yard touchdown reception from Anmol Singh.

Otherwise, the Wolves (3-0), who ran for 230 yards, were in command.

Scott Rider recovered his own onside kick after Kyle Egan ran 6 yards for the first of his two scores with 1:30 left in the first quarter. Peterson's first interception set up the Wolves' second touchdown, and Sean Miller's sack of Singh on a fake punt set up the third.

Kline was efficient zinging passes all over the field, and his receivers danced around potential tacklers. On Peterson's touchdown reception he fended off a tackler at the 16-yard line, then cut around three more as he scampered into the end zone.

Kline's 30-yard strike to a hard-running Nicholas Eckel set up Egan's second touchdown. Egan then stiff-armed a Washington opponent in the backfield before powering 5 yards into the end zone.
