Shadow Ridge wins third straight, still has playoff hopes

The Shadow Ridge football team inched one step closer to the playoffs Thursday night.

The Mustangs won their third straight game, topping visiting Mojave 42-6.

After dropping their initial four games to open Northwest Division play, the Mustangs are back in the playoff hunt. They can reach the playoffs by beating Faith Lutheran next week in the regular season finale and getting a little help from Cheyenne — which has to beat Legacy.

“The offense has been clicking a lot better,” Shadow Ridge coach Gabe Gledhill said. “We’ve finally been able to get some offensive production.”

Quarterback Nick McDearmon rushed and passed for a pair of touchdowns in the win, and the Mustangs also scored twice defensively. Gil Colon returned a fumble for a touchdown and James Grisby had an interception return for a score.

Zach Ducksworth and Erick Thompson had receiving touchdowns.
