Junior wide receiver Colin Mayhugh returns a kickoff at Hesperia Christian. Mayhugh finished with 91 total yards from scrimmage and one touchdown.

Santa Clarita Christian remained undefeated after another easy victory Friday night, this time bulldozing over Hesperia Christian.

For the second week in a row, the Cardinals (4-0) dominated both sides of the ball in route to a 41-6 victory on the road.

Once again, the tandem of junior quarterback Steven Borden and junior running back Collin Keoshian led the way.

Borden finished the night rushing for 97 yards and two touchdowns and passing for 74 yards, 32 of which came on a scoring strike to senior wide receiver Russell Gage.

"It was one of our biggest plays of the year," Cardinals head coach Garrick Moss said. "It would have been on SportsCenter if ESPN covered us."

Rolling left, the right-handed Borden threw across his body and into the hands of a diving Gage for the touchdown.

Gage also collected 12 tackles, one interception and forced a fumble, recovered by Keoshian.

Offensively, Keoshian tallied 162 yards rushing and two touchdowns, caught two passes for 30 yards and completed two passes for 50 yards and a score. Defensively, he led the team with 13 tackles.

Both teams came into the game undefeated, however, the Cardinals defense was able to shut down the Patriots (3-1) who had averaged 42 points per game. The six points were their lowest output since Oct. 12, 2007.

SCCS junior lineman, Daniel Chaplin recorded 11 tackles and two sacks.

Coming off their shutout against Cate School last weekend, the win may potentially be their most impressive of the season, beating a team that was ranked No. 7 in their section.

Next week, the Cardinals will try to continue their dominance at Rolling Hills.

Last year, SCCS lost in their first meeting with the Huskies, but came back and returned the favor in their second meeting - a game in which Keoshian exploded for 348yards and five touchdowns.

"They'll be hungry," Moss added. "It should be a tough matchup."
