Prep Football: Christopher destroys Watsonville

Christopher's quarterback Sterling Montgomery tries to run through the Alvarez defense during their game Friday.

WATSONVILLE — The Christopher High football team sure took advantage of its Watsonville opponent.
One week after a 35-point blowout victory over Pajaro Valley, the Cougars traveled to Watsonville High and gathered their biggest win in the history of the 5-year-old school.
The Cougars shut out the Wildcatz 57-0 on Friday night at Emmett Geiser Field in a Monterey Bay League Pacific Division matchup.
Christopher had all facets working as it forced the Wildcatz into three turnovers while holding Watsonville to minus-42 yards of total offense in the first half.
The Wildcatz trailed Christopher 36-0 at the half.
Brayant Huynh added a 50-yard punt return touchdown for Christopher.
Cougars quarterback Sterling Montgomery threw for 134 yards on 11-of-15 passing, including two touchdowns and two interceptions. Montgomery did not attempt a pass in the second half and the Christopher offense wasn’t forced to punt all game.
Alex Pacheco caught three passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns. In all, six Cougars caught at least one pass in the victory.
Oscar Gonzales and Isaac Lopez recorded two interceptions for the Wildcatz in the loss.
With the Cougars up 50-0 after three quarters, the fourth quarter featured a running clock.
Rashon Mills led the Christopher ground attack, running for 143 yards on 12 carries. That included a 53-yard touchdown on his only carry of the second half. Fellow running back Trevor Hadnot ran for 70 yards on six carries, including three touchdowns.
Alex Azevedo led the Wildcatz on offense, rushing for 52 yards on 24 carries in the loss. Quarterback Triston Rodriguez added 30 yards on 12 carries.
In all, three different players attempted a pass for Watsonville, but they only managed to go a combined 1-for-4 for a single yard with an interception and a sack.
Watsonville (3-5, 1-3) will attempt to prevent Alvarez from capturing at least a share of the MBL-P title when it travels to Salinas next Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Christopher (5-3, 2-2) will face crosstown-rival Gilroy next Friday night at 7:30.
