San Ramon Valley High scored touchdowns on its first four possessions en route to a 41-14 nonleague victory over winless Antioch on Friday night.

The visiting Wolves (2-0) got sluggish in the second quarter before tacking on two more touchdowns in the third and leading 41-0 on Michael Tagliaferri's 45-yard interception return for a score with 7:16 remaining.

The Wolves defensive line controlled Antioch's ground game, limiting the Panthers top rusher Eddie Robinson to 22 yards on 10 carries. He averaged 112 yards in Antioch's first two games, losses to Pitman (23-13) and Clayton Valley (32-16).

San Ramon Valley junior quarterback Zach Kline, a Cal commit, completed seven of his first eight attempts for 95 yards, including a 4-yard scoring strike to Nicholas Eckel on the Wolves' first series.

However, Kline cooled off in the second quarter as the Wolves managed one first down in four possessions.

Kline wound up 9 for 18 for 147 yards and three touchdowns in the rout. He was intercepted by Shamawn Wright on the Wolves' 14-yard line with 8:03 left in the first half, but Tagliafferri had his first of two interceptions in the end zone.

The Panthers aired it out in the second half as Troy Amate threw 19 times, including a 14-yard scoring pass to Anthony Borrelli. Amate passed for 180 yards overall, 135 of which coming in the second half.

Michael Summers, who led the Wolves with 65 yards rushing, scored on a 12-yard run with 5:30 left in the first quarter, and after Scott Ryder's first of five extra points, the lead was 14-0. The Wolves' Trent Peterson's 28-yard interception return set up a 2-yard scoring burst by Benjamin Teichman.
