    It's very hard to make an idiomatic expression, and when people do create them, it's accidental: one person says something, another repeats it, and it spreads like a virus until it's part of the language.

    If you got a high score, you can just say so.

    Here are some common expressions:

    - Beating another team by a big margin has many names, including trouncing, clobbering, crushing, and pummelling.

    - To get an A on a test is to ace the test.

    If you tell us what the high score was for, we can give you better advice on what expressions would fit.
