Christopher went down early to Carmel 6-0 in the first quarter on Saturday, but the game quickly turned into a rout as the Cougars won 41-14.
Christopher improves to 3-0, already matching its win total from the past two years combined.
Ben Sanford threw for 331 yards and three touchdowns against three interceptions as the Cougars outscored the Padres 41-8 in the final three quarters.
Jason Scirgioni had 165 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
Joseph Cupp added 75 yards and a TD.
Connor O’Callaghan added a 20-yard touchdown pass.
Tyler Davis set up Christopher for a balanced day with 111 yards rushing with a touchdown.
Christopher and Carmel were tied 14-all at the half but the Cougars kept pushing.
The Cougars came out of the break scoring 13 in the third quarter and two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter.
Christopher will next host Woodside on Friday night.
The Wildcats are 0-3 this season after dropping close games to Capuchino and Leigh while getting blown out by Carlmont.
Woodside is a pass-heavy team with quarterback Joseph King averaging 250 yards per game.
He can be a dual threat, also rushing for 155 yards to lead the team in that category.
King has two primary targets with Derek Smith catching 14 passes for 245 yards and three touchdowns.
Christopher will also have to keep an eye on Luis Robles and Andres Villareal who have been targeted 18 times and have combined for 341 yards in receiving.
Christopher will have to control the clock against a team that is averaging 23 points per game.
Conversely, the defense is giving up 38 points per game, so there will be a real chance for Christopher to roll into league play 4-0 and looking at a real chance to be undefeated heading into Gilroy on Oct. 6.
But the Cougars know they have to set a tone against Woodside and can’t take the Wildcats lightly.
And Christopher will need to stay focused these next three games mainly because despite their next three opponents holding a combined 1-8 record through three weeks, thinking too much about Gilroy could put a wrench into things.
