TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Catalina Foothills took out their frustrations from a loss to Scottsdale Saguaro out on Flowing Wells.

The Falcons beat the Caballeros 63-7 on a night when the Cabs were realizing the beginnings of life without star running back Dylan Valenzuela.

The senior told Tucson News Now prior to the game that he will miss the remainder of the season with a torn meniscus.

Foothills rolled to a 35-0 lead behind a dynamic first half performance from senior quarterback Rhett Rodriguez.

Rodriguez accounted for five of the Falcons six first half touchdowns.

He threw for four and ran for one more.

Rodriguez hit receivers Brian Beckon (28 yards) and Dashiel Pudwill (34 yards) for scores on Catalina Foothills first two possessions.

He then found Jimmy Stewart on a perfect 76-yard strike for a 21-0 Falcons lead.

His fourth touchdown passes of the first half was a 12-yard screen to Kyle Benson.

Brandon Smith scored on a one-yard run to put the Falcons up 35-0.

Rodriguez threw one more touchdown pass in the second half to finish with five for the game.

The Falcons (2-1) host Empire next Friday in Week 4. Flowing Wells (2-1) will visit undefeated Cienega.
