When Shadow Ridge gets its triple option going, the Mustangs can run their opponent off the field.
That’s what they did Friday night when four players rushed for touchdowns and the host Mustangs overwhelmed Sierra Vista 53-7.
This despite having just five offensive plays in the second half. Shadow Ridge still scored two touchdowns.
“We kept getting a short field, and we were able to execute,” Mustangs coach Travis Foster said.
Davison Glenn rushed for three touchdowns, JaQuieze Holland ran for two TDs, and Coen Coloma and Jon Wilson had one apiece.
Coloma also rushed for 124 yards on just five carries, and passed for 134 yards despite throwing just seven times and completing four of them. His top target was Jeremiah Campbell, who caught three passes for 102 yards.
Shadow Ridge also got the job done defensively, with Stanton Cox intercepting two passes.
The Mustangs (5-1) have won four in a row, topping 40 points in each one. This was the the first time they hit the 50-point mark.
Sierra Vista is 3-3.
