The Dragons desperately need to get back on track.
Del Sol 30, Coronado 26

Both teams are mired in losing streaks, but the Cougars are threatening every week.
Coronado 26, Del Sol 21

Foothill is starting to own the Victory Bell rivalry with Silverado.
Foothill 32, Silverado 13

Foothill is simply a step, or two, ahead of Silverado this season.
Foothill 28, Silverado 10

Green Valley’s win streak ends, and it’s not even close.
Liberty 47, Green Valley 20

It’s going to be a long time before Liberty loses a game.
Liberty 38, Green Valley 21

Crucial 3A rivalry game goes to Moapa Valley, yet again.
Moapa Valley 45, Virgin Valley 23

Pirates appropriately hammer Bulldogs in the Hammer Game.
Moapa Valley 36, Virgin Valley 15

Canyon Springs has only given up 19 points in the last three weeks.
Canyon Springs 50, Eldorado 8

Sorry Brewer, Pioneers are not quite six touchdowns better than the Sundevils.
Canyon Springs 40, Eldorado 18

Every team is lining up to my play Cowboys.
Valley 36, Chaparral 6

Valley has a dual threat quarterback in Anthony Sanders who will torture Chaparral.
Valley 42, Chaparral 16

Desert Pines is starting to show its one of the town’s elite teams.
Desert Pines 46, Rancho 25

Good luck slowing Leon Hayes. Rancho.
Desert Pines 34, Rancho 14

Las Vegas is one of the area’s two undefeated teams, but they aren’t getting any better playing in the Northeast.
Las Vegas 63, Sunrise Mountain 7

Wildcats aren’t getting enough credit for being undefeated. It’s a challenge no matter who you play, so here’s a round of applause.
Las Vegas 45, Sunrise Mountain 0

Pahrump Valley has a hangover from playing Gorman last week, helping Clark in an evenly matched game.
Clark 22, Pahrump Valley 20

These two teams are known for their recent prolonged losing streaks, but this should actually be a decent game.
Pahrump Valley 35, Clark 34

Sierra Vista keeps the game competitive early before falling apart late.
Desert Oasis 35, Sierra Vista 19

Diamondbacks will strike early and often.
Desert Oasis 49, Sierra Vista 21

Spring Valley was the last team to beat Gorman in Southwest play. It won’t happen again, obviously.
Bishop Gorman 58, Spring Valley 0

The only thing more relentless than the Gorman offense is the Gorman defense.
Bishop Gorman 60, Spring Valley 0

Durango gets healthy against a Western team still searching for its first win.
Durango 36, Western 16

Can’t believe Durango is battling to get to .500.
Durango 34, Western 6

After a rough two weeks, Cheyenne is still playing for the No. 3 seed from the Northwest.
Cheyenne 39, Shadow Ridge 13

Don’t know if they’ll hold on to the three-seed, but Desert Shields will make the playoffs this year.
Cheyenne 41, Shadow Ridge 21

Stranger things have happened, but don’t expect to see Cimarron give Arbor View much of a challenge.
Arbor View 39, Cimarron 13

Aggies will push Spartans around up front.
Arbor View 35, Cimarron 17

This North Las Vegas backyard brawl shouldn’t be close.
Legacy 43, Mojave 10

Legacy is a playoff team in any division other than the Northwest.
Legacy 36, Mojave 7

Centennial struggles with Faith Lutheran’s passing attack, but still emerges victorious.
Centennial 29, Faith Lutheran 21

I’m sold on Centennial. Bulldogs win their first of four straight here.
Centennial 38, Faith Lutheran 14

Basic didn’t win the Henderson Bowl against Green Valley, but takes a rivalry game split by topping Boulder City in the Jug Game.
Basic 30, Boulder City 15

Speaking of rivalry games Basic is involved with, can’t wait for the showdown with Foothill in two weeks.
Basic 45, Boulder City 10
