Last Week:
6-6

Last Season:
163-35 (.823)

Arbor View has never beaten Palo Verde in school history. It won’t happen Thursday.
Palo Verde 23, Arbor View 16

Palo Verde’s defense makes enough plays to escape with a narrow decision.
Palo Verde 21, Arbor View 17

I’ve told anyone willing to listen that Legacy’s L.J. McMorris is going to be a star.
Legacy 31, Cheyenne 14

With so many athletes on the field, this game should have an impressive pace.
Legacy 42, Cheyenne 26

I thought Cimarron was going to have a down year. I was wrong.
Cimarron 38, Mojave 6

Demaryae Williams is the captain of the Southern Nevada chapter of players who aren’t receiving enough attention.
Cimarron 36, Mojave 0

Both teams will have several first-time varsity players. Could be a mistake-filled game.
Faith Lutheran 13, Shadow Ridge 9

These teams combined for 73 points last year — and Brewer has them scoring 22 Friday? Give me the over.
Shadow Ridge 34, Faith Lutheran 21

Desert Oasis will only lose once in league — Friday at Gorman.
Bishop Gorman 49, Desert Oasis 6

Bishop Gorman and Foothill as its non-division opponents to open the season? Someone has it out for Desert Oasis.
Bishop Gorman 40, Desert Oasis 14

Bonanza riding momentum from its surprise victory against Silverado.
Bonanza 39, Pahrump Valley 15

If we had a high school fantasy football keeper league, Bonanza sophomore Jayveon Taylor would be an easy first round pick.
Bonanza 56, Pahrump Valley 18

Durango gets back on track.
Durango 32, Spring Valley 7

Spring Valley flirts with the idea of an opening night upset for the second year in a row, but falls short this time.
Durango 31, Spring Valley 22

Western, which finished last season with consecutive victories, continues its winning streak.
Western 23, Clark 12

Clark has routed Western three years in a row. No compelling evidence exists to support that changing this season.
Clark 42, Western 21

Canyon Springs has a hangover from its poor showing last week against Palo Verde.
Foothill 32, Canyon Springs 19

Still believe Canyon Springs comes into its own this year, but hold that thought for one more week.
Foothill 27, Canyon Springs 13

Moapa Valley is finally rested after its Arizona trip.
Moapa Valley 30, Chaparral 6

Can we kill the myth that Brewer never picks against alma mater for once and for all?
Moapa Valley 41, Chaparral 8

I’m taking Liberty to get back on track in Poly Bowl I.
Liberty 33, Desert Pines 23

Don’t worry, friends at Liberty — I’m not off of the bandwagon yet.
Liberty 34, Desert Pines 15

Nobody is going to stop the dynamic duo of Henderson and Victory.
Las Vegas 23, Centennial 20

Nobody? What about the best linebacker in the area, Trajan Pili?
Centennial 28, Las Vegas 20

This might be the best Rancho team in the last decade.
Rancho 22, Basic 19

OK Basic, we may have to break up if you let me down again this week.
Basic 26, Rancho 16

Coronado gets its season started with a victory.
Coronado 30, Sunrise Mountain 12

It’s very possible these two teams go a combined 1-17 this season.
Coronado 35, Sunrise Mountain 10

Eldorado wins the battle in the trenches.
Eldorado 19, Boulder City 17

Torn on this game, but Boulder City’s 38-point win to open the season was beyond impressive.
Boulder City 26, Eldorado 20

Virgin Valley beats another 4A classification school.
Virgin Valley 38, Sierra Vista 18

Virgin Valley quarterback Humberto Urias is a dangerous man.
Virgin Valley 31, Sierra Vista 16
