The Scorpions beat previously unbeaten Shadow Ridge

Breakdown

What many thought would be a great showdown between two undefeated teams turned into a game that got out of hand in a hurry. Before the stands got full, Desert Edge was out to a 35-0 lead.

Desert Edge threw 3 TD passes to Elijah Marks and 2 to senior Jordan Jackson in building the lead. Hernandez hit Marks for one more score in the first half as wel as C.J. Heard

Shadow Ridge put two scores on the board on Trevor Mucci to Xavier Niesen passes. Score 49-14 at half.

DE back Demetrius Murray scored early in the 3rd to force a running clock because of the 42 point lead.

Hernandez hit Marks for one more score in the game while Shadow Ridge got 2 TDs out of RB Chris Salsberry.

Final Desert Edge 63 Shadow Ridge 28

Bottomline

Desert Edge was just better. Shadow Ridge has a lot of talent and has a chance to make some noise in the playoffs though. If it wasn't clear before, Desert Edge clearly grabs hold of the number one spot in D3.

Game Balls

Desert Edge QB Anthony Hernandez threw 8 TDs, 5 went to Elijah Marks.
