Arroyo Grande High School quarterback Kadin Byrne had four touchdowns in the Eagles’ 38-0 non-conference win over neighboring Nipomo.

Byrne overcame an early interception, throwing for a score and finishing with three rushing touchdowns to lead Arroyo Grande to its third consecutive win.

Caleb Tomasin added an 80-yard rushing touchdown.

The Eagles (4-1) managed a field goal in the first quarter but erupted for 35 combined points in the second and third quarters.

The victory was the Eagles’ ninth consecutive in the history between the two teams.

What’s next

Arroyo Grande will look to keep its winning streak intact when it plays Bullard of Fresno next week. Nipomo (3-2) will play at Santa Maria.
