CARLSBAD Carlsbad High hasn’t started a season this strongly in quite some time.
Well, those teams never had an offense like this.
The Lancers scored early and often while rolling to a 56-7 nonleague victory over Westview on homecoming night Friday.
The Lancers have outscored the opposition 195-24 so far to notch their first 4-0 start since 2006.
Against the Wolverines, Carlsbad put together six scoring drives of less than two minutes each, including a lightning-quick 31-second strike on its second possession of the game.
Senior quarterback Christian Chapman, showing why San Diego State wants him in red and black next fall, completed 6 of 7 passes for 125 yards and three touchdowns — all in the first half. He has 12 TDs in four games.
Junior running back Dylan Rutledge added a 62-yard run and a 30-yard reception for scores.
The Lancers showed off their defense as well, forcing two turnovers and blocking a punt that was returned by Valentine Macedo 15 yards for a score. James Carver had the block that set up his teammate.
Jordan Perez and Valtteri Saomaki each grabbed scoring tosses from Chapman.
Carlsbad saw its streak of 10 straight quarters without allowing a point end in the third quarter.
