ANTIOCH -- A 90-yard punt return, two touchdown runs, a 70-yard scoring strike, a pair of two-point conversions and two PATs, just another first half for Hunter Karnthong.

Antioch's senior captain unleashed a scoring barrage that left Dougherty Valley scrambling for answers.

The Panthers improved to 4-0 for the second straight year with hopes of improving on last year's 6-4 regular season.

"We want to improve as much as possible and keep the momentum for league," Karnthong said. "(the Bay Valley Athletic League) is one of the toughest leagues in the Bay Area."

Karnthong is thriving in his first full season as the starting QB, but it was his 90-yard punt return that got things going, and it was a bit of an accident.

Antioch lined up to defend against Dougherty Valley (0-4) on fourth-and-two, and when the Wildcats punted instead of going for it, Karnthong dropped back to receive the kick.

He caught the ball at the 10-yardline, split two defenders and raced 90-yards down the sideline for the first score of the game.

Dougherty Valley tied the game with a 10-play, 65-yard drive capped by a 3-yard touchdown pass from Umar Farooq to Kody Knezeak.

Karnthong and Elbert Hamilton put the game away from there. Hamilton carried the ball just seven times, but had 136 yards and touchdowns of 60 and 50 yards.

Karnthong added 106 yards on three carries and was 5-of-7 passing for 95 yards.

Antioch averaged over 20 yards per run with 17 carries for 357 yards as a team, despite a running clock the entire second half
