Brewer vs. Keefer
Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Case Keefer attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.
One of the Northwest’s best rivalry games will be won by the more athletic team.
Cheyenne 23, Cimarron 20
Cimarron football is back, baby.
Cimarron 24, Cheyenne 7
Raise your hand if you had the Bengals starting 3-0.
Bonanza 32, Sierra Vista 19
Picked Bonanza to make the playoffs last year, guess I was a year early in calling for its breakthrough.
Bonanza 27, Sierra Vista 20
I will take the team that has the best player on the field — Clark’s Marquise McKinney.
Clark 27, Spring Valley 12
The Grizzlies defense played admirably against Durango. Now, the offense just needs to catch up.
Spring Valley 26, Clark 21
Gorman hasn’t lost a Southwest league game since 2006.
Gorman 56, Durango 0
And the Gaels may not lose one until 2106.
Gorman 49, Durango 0
Pahrump Valley’s losing streak continues, but just barely.
Western 15, Pahrump Valley 12
Not as close as Brewer envisions.
Western 28, Pahrump Valley 6
Arbor View wins the battle in the trenches in this physical contest.
Arbor View 17, Centennial 13
Feels nice to finally be able to pick Arbor View.
Arbor View 21, Centennial 10
The schools have played every year since opening together in 1996 and Palo Verde has never lost.
Palo Verde 44, Mojave 7
Life is but a breeze for the Panthers.
Palo Verde 47, Mojave 0
Legacy is already in a must-win situation in the competitive Northwest Division.
Legacy 32, Faith Lutheran 6
L.J. McMorris and the offensive line in front of him get it together here.
Legacy 28, Faith Lutheran 15
Virgin Valley beats up on another 4A classification school.
Virgin Valley 34, Shadow Ridge 14
Time to already start building the anticipation for the Moapa Valley vs. Virgin Valley rivalry. Both teams look good so far.
Virgin Valley 17, Shadow Ridge 7
It pains me to pick against my Cowboys.
Coronado 43, Chaparral 7
So tempted to pick Chaparral here, but common sense prevails.
Coronado 35, Chaparral 19
Its tough to pick against Foothill against its great start to the season.
Foothill 32, Desert Oasis 21
No doubt in my mind Foothill contends for the Southeast Division title this year.
Foothill 24, Desert Oasis 23
Green Valley’s defense is the weak link, but its offense is potent enough to beat B.C.
Green Valley 32, Boulder City 29
Boulder City let one get away last week. Eagles won’t have the same opportunity against a better team.
Green Valley 26, Boulder City 13
Don’t be surprised when Del Sol is playing during Thanksgiving weekend in the state semifinals.
Del Sol 49, Eldorado 16
Rumor has it that Brewer will attend this game. He’ll be the guy with Dragons face paint and a Del Sol fanny pack.
Del Sol 42, Eldorado 17
Silverado gets back on track after its shocking upset two weeks ago.
Silverado 39, Valley 0
This upset would be even more shocking. But it’s not going to happen.
Silverado 40, Valley 13
I will say it again: Moapa Valley is one of the state’s top 10 programs.
Moapa Valley 63, Sunrise Mountain 6
A Pirate’s life for me.
Moapa Valley 35, Sunrise Mountain 0
