Shadow Ridge falls in Utah to Snow Canyon

The Shadow Ride High football team trailed by just six points Friday in the second half but gave up a pair of defensive touchdowns late in falling to host Snow Canyon of Utah, 43-16.

“The game was closer than the final score,” Shadow Ridge coach Frank Tousa said.

Bakari Smith accounted for two of Shadow Ridge’s touchdowns, connecting with Marquise Evans for a 70-yard scoring strike and rushing in from 8 yards out. Aarron Council added a 25-yard field goal for the Mustangs.

Snow Canyon had a fumble and interception return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to seal the victory.

Shadow Ridge didn’t win a game last year. While they didn’t break into the win column against Snow Canyon, there was plenty of positives to take away from the game.

“The kids are a little down because they didn’t want to lose,” Tousa said. “But they realize good things are going on.”
