It might be white flag-waving time in the Marmonte League.
In what was supposed to be its toughest challenge in league play, Westlake Village Westlake's football team encountered little difficulty Friday, posting a victory over previously unbeaten Agoura.
Tahj Mowry rushed for 144 yards, Jeff Rapoport scored two touchdowns and Marcus Maddocks shut down Agoura's most dangerous player, Braden Lepisto.
Agoura quarterback Bryan Walker came into the game having completed 69% of his passes with just one interception in leading the Chargers to a 4-0 start.
But Walker missed on nine consecutive passes in the first half and finished 12 of 36 for 172 yards with two interceptions.
The Warriors (5-0, 2-0) took a 14-0 halftime lead, scoring after interceptions by safety Ryan Ruel and lineman David Winer.
Rudy Carpenter connected with tight end Jimmy Miller for a 15-yard scoring pass and Rapoport scored on a six-yard run.
Maddocks held Lepisto to three catches for 39 yards. He broke up at least five passes in an individual duel with the speedy Agoura receiver, depriving Walker of his favorite target.
"Lepisto is so much of their offense, and Marcus was big time up for the challenge," Westlake defensive coordinator Mike Leibin said.
Agoura had a first-and-goal situation from the three-yard line on its opening possession but failed to score.
"Our defense rallied in the red zone and came up with a stop every time," Maddocks said.

Hart 23, Loyola 16
Sometimes a victory, no matter what team it's against, is all it takes to change the momentum of a season seemingly gone bad.
For Newhall Hart, which started the season with three consecutive losses, the crucial victory came last week against Van Nuys Birmingham. Now the Indians, ranked No. 8 in the Southland by The Times, are on a winning streak.
The Hart defense, a problem through much of the early season, held Los Angeles Loyola and its storied rushing attack to only 71 yards in a victory Friday night at College of the Canyons in Valencia.
The victory last week against defending City Section champion Birmingham, which won only one of its first four games, was a key stepping stone, but defeating No. 14 Loyola (3-2) boosted the team's confidence.
"This is huge," Hart Coach Mike Herrington said. "We beat a tough, tough team."
Loyola trailed, 20-7, at halftime, but Ian Wilson intercepted a pass by Hart quarterback Sean Norton and returned it 23 yards to the Hart seven-yard line. Two plays later Loyola quarterback Scott Deke found George Hypolite in the end zone.
The two-point conversion failed and Hart led, 23-13, with 6 minutes 22 seconds to play. On Hart's next possession, running back Dan Howell fumbled and Loyola recovered at the Hart 19, but the Indians held Loyola to a field goal and maintained a 23-16 lead with 5:08 to play.
A 35-yard pass play from Norton to Terry Leigh and two offside penalties by Loyola on the ensuing drive helped Hart run out the clock, but not before Herrington had flashbacks of his team's 25-24 loss to No. 4 Westlake Village Westlake this season.
In that game, Westlake scored a touchdown and two-point conversion in the final minute to win.
"There were some nervy coaches over there," Herrington said.
Loyola scored on the opening possession, going 72 yards in eight plays, but mustered little after that. Hart, meanwhile, moved the ball impressively against a Loyola defense that had allowed only 24 points in its previous four games.
Norton completed 14 of 24 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns. Howell carried 24 times for 111 yards and also had three catches for 16 yards and a touchdown. Receiver Kevin Ciccione had seven catches for 95 yards and a touchdown.
For Loyola, Deke completed 10 of 22 passes for 138 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw an interception.
La Serna 55, Workman 0
Ricky Beltran rushed for two touchdowns to lead La Serna (5-0) to a 42-0 halftime lead. Workman is 0-5.
Ribet Academy 17, Sage Hill 12
Free safety Brett James had two interceptions and kicked a 44-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for Ribet Academy (3-2). Strong safety Joseph Marcos intercepted a pass for the Frogs on the Ribet Academy 12-yard line with less than one minute left to hold off the Lightning (1-4).
San Clemente 44, Foothill 21
Cheyne Verhagen set a school record and the Tritons took advantage of five turnovers to hand the Knights their first loss of the season at Tustin High.
Verhagen, a senior, scored two touchdowns, breaking the school record for career touchdowns with 34. James Allen scored 33 touchdowns from 1997-99.
Verhagen, who carried 18 times for 81 yards, set the record on a 17-yard draw play in the third quarter that gave San Clemente (3-2) a 37-3 lead.
Four of Foothill's turnovers led to points for the Tritons (3-2), including a 79-yard interception return by John Jay Verhagen.
Triton quarterback Cole Bergquist completed 20 of 29 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions. Receiver Steve Melton caught 11 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns.
Casey Daniels completed 17 of 31 passes for 319 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions for Foothill (4-1).
Servite 7, Edison 0
Eric Terrazas didn't score the winning touchdown, but the junior defensive back had everything to do with Anaheim Servite defeating Huntington Beach Edison Friday night at Orange Coast College.
Terrazas had two of the game's biggest hits, including a big-time stick on Edison's Joshua Gage that separated the running back from the ball at the Chargers' 27-yard line with 5 minutes 30 seconds left before halftime.
Servite defensive back Mike Hernishin wound up with the bouncing ball and he rambled down the middle of the field along with an escort of Friars for what turned out to be the only touchdown of the game.
Late in the fourth quarter, with Edison knocking on the door at the Servite 12-yard line, Terrazas blind-sided Charger sophomore quarterback Brian Shrock as he dropped back to pass on a third-and-three.
Instead of going for the first down, Edison (3-2) went for it all. However, Shrock threw the pass short of Matt White, who was open in the end zone.
"Both plays were blitzes," Terrazas said. "I was just trying to do anything for the team."
It was the second consecutive time Edison suffered a shutout. The Charges, ranked No. 21 by The Times, averaged 26.5 points in their first two games.
Sophomore Ken Ashley rushed for 87 yards, the bulk of it coming on a 35-yard jaunt on the first play of the fourth quarter for Servite (5-0), ranked No. 22 by The Times.
Shrock completed 15 of 28 passes for 142 yards. Junior running back Abel Cardona led Edison with 71 yards on 12 carries.
Sherman Oaks Notre Dame 24, Valencia 23
The host Knights hung on for the victory when Valencia quarterback Mike Herrick overthrew wide receiver Chris Wright in the back of the end zone on a two-point conversion attempt with 3.2 seconds to play.
Herrick, a sophomore who completed 25 of 42 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown, had scored on a one-yard sneak to cut the No. 23-ranked Vikings' deficit to a point. But his conversion pass sailed well over the head of Wright.
"I just made a mistake," Herrick said as he fought back tears. "I had two guys open in the back of the end zone and I just overthrew them."
Notre Dame (4-1), the No. 11-ranked team in the Southland by The Times, took a 24-17 lead on a 28-yard field goal by Tim Rubey with 4:57 left in the game. But Valencia (4-1) drove 68 yards in 12 plays.
Herrick completed a 14-yard pass to Jeff Bomberger on a fourth-and-four play from the Valencia 38-yard line early in the drive and the Vikings also benefited from a roughing the passer penalty against Notre Dame.
The defending Southern Section Division III champion Knights trailed, 14-7, at halftime, but scored touchdowns on their first two possessions of the second half.
Cary Harris, who rushed for 134 yards in 15 carries, scored on a 13-yard run 48 seconds into the second half to cut Notre Dame's deficit to 14-13.
Teammate Brandon Clayton, who gained 125 yards in 12 carries, scored on a one-yard run with 6:41 left in the third quarter and the two-point conversion run by quarterback Garrett Green gave Notre Dame a 21-14 lead.
St. Bernard 21, Cerritos Valley Christian 20
St. Bernard held off Cerritos Valley Christian's two-point conversion with no time left to get the win.Valley Christian (3-2) quarterback Matt Spruiksma threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Brenton Crossen to set up the possible game-winner.Cerritos Valley Christian tailback Brian Malone rushed for 261 yards and two touchdowns in 44 carries.
St. Bonaventure 27, Ridgecrest Burroughs 20
Anthony Celestine had 13 receptions for 216 yards and two touchdowns for Burroughs, but it wasn't enough as the defending Southern Section Division IV champions Seraphs (5-0) turned up their defensive play in the second half to ensure a victory at Moorpark College.
Brian Stevens completed a swing pass to junior running back Matt Lee, who eluded a swarm of tacklers and ran 47 yards for a score to give No. 4 St. Bonaventure a 21-13 lead with four seconds left in the first half.
After a 60-yard touchdown pass play from quarterback Karsten Sween to Celestine brought Burroughs to within 24-20, a Chris Diaz field goal extended St. Bonaventure's lead to 27-20.
Burroughs (4-1) had a chance to tie the score in the final eight seconds, but Diaz intercepted Sween's pass at the St. Bonaventure two-yard line.
Sween, who had entered the game having thrown only two interceptions, was picked off three times by the Seraphs.
Lee rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns and Stevens completed 11 passes for 216 yards.
St. Monica 26, Cantwell Sacred Heart 7
Josh Clark had 12 carries for 114 yards and two touchdowns and Gilbert Ramirez had 18 carries for 120 yards to lead St. Monica (4-1) over host Cantwell Sacred Heart (1-4).St. Monica receiver/cornerback Michael Dunn had four catches for 75 yards and one touchdown and also intercepted a pass.

Los Alamitos 31, Carson 6
Orlando Scandrick took inside handoffs from quarterback Jimmy Barnes and scored on runs of 57 and 37 yards for the top-ranked Griffins, who built a 21-0 lead and cruised at Veterans Stadium in Long Beach.
Carson (2-3) outgained Los Alamitos (5-0) in total yardage, 296-245, but failed to covert many of its third- and fourth-down situations deep in Griffin territory. One drive that reached the 21-yard line midway through the second quarter ended with an incomplete pass on fourth down.
"When we got inside the red zone, it seemed like we couldn't do anything," said Carson Coach John Aguirre. "Usually we're pretty successful down in there. We just didn't have it today."
Robert Miller had 110 yards in 15 carries for the Colts, who scored on Carlton Smith's 18-yard run midway through the third quarter that made the score 21-6.
A week after completing a school-record 28 passes in a victory over La Habra, Barnes threw only 11 passes, completing five for 101 yards. The junior connected with Jeremy Childs for a 13-yard touchdown on Los Alamitos' first drive of the game. Childs caught the ball at the Carson one-yard line and spun into the end zone for the score.
Scandrick finished with 88 yards in four carries.

La Palma Kennedy 28, Tesoro 13
The Fighting Irish regained its momentum on special teams and didn't let go in the second half en route to the victory at Anaheim Western High.
Kennedy (4-1) was stopped on fourth and goal at the one-yard line on its opening drive of the game and later could not stop Tesoro (3-2) on a 17-play, 98-yard drive that took eight minutes off the first-half clock and gave the Titans a 6-0 lead.
But Kennedy's Bryan Pepperdine blocked a punt late in the second quarter and Ryan Griffin returned it 12 yards to the Tesoro five. Two plays later, wide receiver Tanner Elliott took a direct snap from center and scored on a six-yard run for a 7-6 lead.
The Fighting Irish then scored on its first three drives of the second half, two on touchdown passes from Robert Becker.
Elliott, who came into the game with 28 catches and six touchdowns this season, caught only two passes, but one went for a 58-yard touchdown that gave Kennedy a 21-6 lead. Kennedy sophomore running back Calvin Smart rushed for 84 of his 86 yards in the second half.
Tesoro junior running back Evan Handa rushed for 132 yards in 28 carries, including a 10-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. The Titans were slowed by 10 penalties for 75 yards.

Dorsey 26, Chino 10
Los Angeles Dorsey's defense continued to wreak havoc on opponents as the Dons held host Chino to 124 yards in an intersectional victory Thursday night.
For the Dons (5-0), who have held opponents to an average of six points a game, the victory was another step in gaining respect for the program and City Section teams.
"Our kids took it as a challenge," Dorsey Coach Paul Knox said. "Many people think City football [teams] can't compete with Southern Section teams. Our kids took a cue from Venice beating Loyola."
Dorsey's running game was as impressive as its defense. Jeremiah Johnson rushed for 173 yards and two touchdowns in 14 carries and Stafon Johnson added 115 yards in 16 carries.
Jeremiah Johnson set the stage on the first play from scrimmage, bouncing outside and taking the ball 80 yards for a touchdown 13 seconds into the game. He added a 31-yard scoring run that gave Dorsey a 26-10 lead with 2:33 left in the third quarter.
Chino (3-2) was playing without leading rusher R.J. Stanford, who broke his shoulder in practice. The Cowboys got 110 yards rushing in 15 carries from Shawn Oatis, who scored Chino's only touchdown on an eight-yard run to cap the first drive of the second half.
Dorsey quarterback Donald Prince completed six of 15 passes for 78 yards, with touchdown passes to Albert Russell and Phillip Perry.
