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.
A week off will help a Desert Pines still trying to get in game shape.
Desert Pines 22, Canyon Springs 19
Canyon Springs started 0-2 last year and only lost one more the rest of the way. Same story, different season.
Canyon Springs 30, Desert Pines 21
Foothill is right in the middle of things again in the Southeast.
Foothill 34, Coronado 7
Going to say it again: Picking Foothill to win the Southeast is not far-fetched at all.
Foothill 42, Coronado 14
It will feel like a Henderson Bowl in the 1990s come Friday night with Green Valley running over Basic.
Green Valley 44, Basic 22
Doesn’t really feel like high school football season until Brewer and I disagree on Basic two weeks in a row.
Basic 35, Green Valley 20
Del Sol’s run to the Southeast Division title starts with a tough win against Silverado.
Del Sol 31, Silverado 25
Great barometer for both teams, looking forward to this one.
Del Sol 24, Silverado 14
Schedule makers didn’t do any favors for a good Centennial squad, which will be 0-3 after Friday.
Palo Verde 22, Centennial 7
Panthers chomp on the Bulldogs.
Palo Verde 24, Centennial 0
Problems under center spell disaster for Eldog.
Las Vegas 34, Eldorado 0
Playing Las Vegas High spells disaster for most teams.
Las Vegas 45, Eldorado 6
Come Friday night, the Chaparral Cowboys will be in a first place tie in the Northeast.
Chaparral 24, Sunrise Mountain 16
It’s the first day of the week and Brewer has already mentioned Chaparral’s first place possibilities 10 times.
Chaparral 20, Sunrise Mountain 13
Rancho’s struggles in its initial two games are erased with a convincing victory.
Rancho 33, Valley 12
Rancho Rams. Nice alliteration.
Rancho 34, Valley 15
Arbor View is one of the area’s elite teams.
Arbor View 44, Mojave 7
Stat-padding game for the Aggies.
Arbor View 41, Mojave 0
Cimarron gets back on track against a Faith Lutheran squad with several younger plays still getting acclimated to Friday nights.
Cimarron 43, Faith Lutheran 0
With Palo Verde on deck, it’s essential Cimarron wins here.
Cimarron 27, Faith Lutheran 17
Legacy posts another lopsided victory.
Legacy 49, Shadow Ridge 3
Watch out for Legacy, which could easily climb its way back into the Northwest playoff race.
Legacy 35, Shadow Ridge 13
Desert Oasis, despite its 0-2 start, is still the second best team in the Southwest.
Desert Oasis 45, Western 13
Diamondbacks will be at least a touchdown-favorite in the rest of their games.
Desert Oasis 38, Western 12
Anyone have a coin? I’ll take the team with more momentum.
Bonanza 22, Durango 19
Trailblazers will wear down the Bengals and pull away at the end of the game.
Durango 28, Bonanza 17
The mystery isn’t whether or not Gorman is going to win. It’s how many points it will surrender, if any.
Gorman 54, Clark 0
Will the Gaels allow points? That’s laughable. Yards? That’s a better question.
Bishop Gorman 63, Clark 0
Three cheers for Pahrump snapping its losing streak last week against Western. However, they won’t be so lucky Friday.
Sierra Vista 33, Pahrump Valley 16
One losing streak ends. Another begins.
Sierra Vista 28, Pahrump Valley 0
Great tune-up for Liberty in its preparation for league-play.
Liberty 39, Spring Valley 19
Hope Liberty used its off week wisely and improved defensively.
Liberty 37, Spring Valley 14
Cheyenne proves to future league foe Virgin Valley that they will dominate the lower classification.
Cheyenne 39, Virgin Valley 12
Cheyenne, to me, is the biggest surprise of 2011.
Cheyenne 42, Virgin Valley 31
