Shadow Ridge played perhaps the game of the night in Utah. Unfortunately for the Mustangs, they came out on the wrong end.
Shadow Ridge scored to take the lead with 1:20 remaining in the game, only to see Snow Canyon (Utah) complete a 60-yard touchdown pass on the ensuing play to stun the Mustangs, 31-27.
Shadow Ridge battled back from two first-half turnovers and a 10-point halftime deficit. The Mustangs came out strong in the third quarter with a pair of scores to take the lead, then surrendered a deep touchdown pass to lose the lead.
The Mustangs didn’t hang their heads but instead grabbed the lead one more time before eventually falling.
“Obviously it’s disappointing when you lose a game like that,” Shadow Ridge coach Travis Foster said. “There was a lot to build on. Our kids battled.”
