ANTIOCH -- Paced by a quick-strike offense and two kick returns for touchdowns by Nzuzi Webster, the Deer Valley High football team ran away with a 56-13 nonleague win over visiting Rodriguez-Fairfield on Friday.

Nsimba Webster led Deer Valley (1-0) with 111 passing yards on just three completions -- all of them touchdowns. He also ran for team-high 77 yards and a score.

"We were really ready for this game after having the first week off. We were so focused," Nsimba Webster said.

The Wolverines scored on back-to-back three play drives to open the game. After forcing Rodriguez-Fairfield (0-1) to punt, Nzuzi Webster took the kick on two bounces and ran down the left sideline for a 47-yard return to make it 21-0 with 1:17 left in the first quarter.

Rodriguez would get on the board just before halftime, as Miles Perry snatched a bobbled snap from the air and returned it 85 yards for a Mustang touchdown.

Perry also caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Hurt on the game's final play.

Nzuzi Webster returned the second-half kickoff 92 yards to open up a 42-7 lead for Deer Valley.
