There would be no hangover this season for the Bishop Gorman High football team.

The Gaels finished their national schedule last week undefeated in six games and ranked No. 1 in the nation. Today, they continued the solid performances, beating visiting Shadow Ridge 56-0 in the Southwest League opener.

Last year in a similar spot, the five-time defending state champion trailed early against Legacy and won by just 13 points.

“We have some good senior leadership,” Gorman coach Tony Sanchez said. “This team wasn’t going to let that happen. They did a good job of staying focused.”

Tate Martell completed 10 of 14 passes for 220 yards with four touchdowns in the first half, hooking up with Tyjon Lindsey for a pair of scoring strikes. He also connected with Alize Jones and Cordell Broadus.

Danny Hong also had two touchdown passes for Gorman, finding Noah Hill and Austin Arnold. Running backs Russell Booze and Jaylen Carrol each had rushing touchdowns.

Shadow Ridge picked up a few first downs on its initial drive of the game, but Gorman’s defense tightened to record its second shutout of the season.
