“I think the kids were ready to play after last week,” Shadow Ridge coach Frank Tousa said. “We came out and played hard and got some younger kids experience.”
The Mustangs were up 27-0 midway through the second quarter and added two more touchdowns before the start of the fourth. The running clock, which starts when a team goes up by 45 points, was activated early in the fourth quarter to spare Rancho from further punishment.
Puia completed all three of his passes before Tousa pulled him and the rest of the starters from the game. Three different running backs recorded the Mustangs' other scores.
Tousa came away most pleased with how his team improved after last week’s 25-6 loss to Snow Canyon (Utah).
“We cut down on our penalties and saw solid playing time from our second team,” Tousa said.
