Pires added 18 yards and a TD on three carries.

Led by senior defensive lineman Sean McLeod, Central Valley's defense limited Riverbank's offense to five touchdowns and 142 total yards.

The Bruins managed to gain just 44 rushing yards on 22 carries as the Hawks registered 10 tackles for losses or no gain.

Riverbank senior quarterback Anthony Sahagun completed 8 of 14 passes for 88 yards with three touchdowns and one pick (Fonsworth). He also had two TD receptions.

Sahagun hooked up with senior receiver Evan Gunther for three scores.

The Hawks reeled off 42 straight points to open the game.

Mew tossed two TD passes to Williams (2, 25) and one to Garcia (8).

Lopez scored on a 25-yard run.

Central Valley players, coaches and fans were in a jovial mood afterwards.

The Hawks did just about everything right. Their offense was efficient. They played smart and aggressive on defense.

"I was real impressed with how the team performed offensively and defensively," Mew said. "We came out with a high intensity. We were ready."
