Jones kept the Mustangs' drive alive by rushing for 11 yards on fourth-and-10. Two plays later, he found Davis between two defenders in the right corner of the end zone.

Foothill had a final chance after Aaron Dupin hit Tommy Silvas for 32 yards to the Shadow Ridge 48. But Dupin was intercepted by Davis four plays later.

Shadow Ridge (1-1) took a 20-0 lead by scoring three touchdowns in a 1:09 span of the first quarter. Darnell Aycock had a pair of 4-yard runs and Davis returned a fumble 16 yards for the other TD.
