Legacy High football players Derriyon Shaw, Tanoa Alapati, AJ Sotelo, and Caden Sink before the 2015 Season.

Shadow Ridge opened up its game against Legacy on Thursday night with a screen pass on the game’s first play that went 70 yards to the end zone.

It would be the last time the Mustangs (1-8, 1-3) saw the end zone, as the Longhorns stampeded Shadow Ridge 28-7.

“We ran the ball really well all night and took a lot of time off the clock,” Legacy coach John Isola said.

Legacy’s (3-6, 2-2) final odometer on the ground showed 305 rushing yards, most of which came from star running back Tiger Geeslin.

The senior carried the ball 20 times for 165 yards and ran in all four Longhorn touchdowns.

After taking a 14-7 lead into halftime, Legacy leaned on its strong rushing game in the second half to salt the game away.

“We had the ball for almost the entire third quarter,” Isola said. “We really put it out of reach with two third-quarter touchdowns.”

Junior running back Justin Whitehead ran it 12 times for 82 yards before Isola put in seniors who rarely see the field for their final home game.

The win brings the Longhorns to 2-2 in the Southwest division heading into their final regular season game with Centennial (7-2, 3-1) next Friday.
