After failing to score in the first half of its Northwest League opener, the Shadow Ridge High football team posted 22 unanswered points to open the second half tonight in a 29-11 victory against visiting Cimarron-Memorial.

And when Cimarron scored to break the string of points, Shadow Ridge’s Josiah Nichols returned the ensuing kickoff 82 yards for a touchdown.

“It was ugly,” Shadow Ridge coach Travis Foster said of the first half, when his Mustangs trailed 3-0 at the break. “We turned the ball over twice in the first half. The defense played incredibly well to only give up a field goal.”

Anthony Wheaton, Xavier Gomez and Devoisier Hobbs had touchdown runs for Shadow Ridge, which improves to 4-1 overall on the season.
