The Serra High-San Mateo High football team physically outmatched visiting Encinal and cruised to a 56-7 blowout victory Friday afternoon.

A year after the Jets took the Padres to overtime in a 34-26 loss, this one was over after a quarter.

Serra (2-0) scored on its first drive, then added two more touchdowns before its offense got the ball back. Eason Winston returned a punt 50 yards for a score and Kavapele Maka took one back 52 yards.

The Padres held the Jets (1-2) to minus-19 yards in the first quarter while building a 28-0 lead.

"I thought the defense set the tone early and gave us some short fields," Serra coach Patrick Walsh said. "The special teams played good early. In football, you never take anything for granted. We're grateful. We took this opportunity to mature."

Eric Redwood had two touchdowns in the first-half, including a 1-yard run on the Padres' first drive. He finished with 92 yards on 10 carries.

Kava Cassidy added a 1-yard scoring run and Redwood had a 5-yard run that made it 35-0 at halftime. Cassidy also had two second-half touchdowns and finished with 68 yards on seven carries.

Encinal (1-2) reached the end zone when Isaiah Hunter returned a kick 45 yards to set the Jets up. Four plays later, Tyrell Carrigan went six yards for a score.
