Expanded coverage

Legacy notched its fifth win of the season Friday night with a 63-7 pounding of Virgin Valley.

The game followed the same pattern as all of the Longhorns’ wins have this season: They gave the ball to senior running back DeShae Edwards and he piled up the yards.

“Our kids played pretty well,” Legacy coach Dave Snyder said. “It’s rough with the drive up there (to Mesquite) and everything.”

Snyder was able to substitute in all of his backups after the first possession of the third quarter. Sophomore running back L.J. McMorris picked up where Edwards left off and ran for a couple of touchdowns.

Legacy is undefeated headed into its two biggest games of the season — at Cimarron-Memorial and a home bout with Palo Verde.

“I think we’re getting better each week,” Snyder said. “We still have things to improve on, but we’re getting into the thick of it.”
