Feather River head football coach Bart Andrus probably doesn't want to see a Marvel superhero flick for quite some time.

It might bring up nightmares of Butte running back Marvel Harris.

The stellar sophomore running back put forth a superhero performance rushing for 177 yards on 27 carries with six touchdowns, leading the Roadrunners to a 65-9 victory over Feather River on Saturday at the Eagles' Nest in Quincy.

As a team, the Roadrunners gashed the Golden Eagles for 356 yards on the ground.

The Butte offense racked up a season-high 649 yards.

Quarterback Zach Kline completed 16 of 19 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns.

Butte's defense stepped up as well, holding Feather River's offense to just 119 yards. The Roadrunners sacked Golden Eagles quarterback Ja'Quay Garmon six times.

Butte looked fresh, especially Harris, coming off their bye week as they improve to 4-2 overall and 1-0 in Nor Cal League play.

The Roadrunners will be back action next Saturday, October 25th, against Sierra at Harrison Stadium in Oroville. Kick-off is slated for 6:00pm.
