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.
Arbor View is simply too physical up front for Durango..
Arbor View 44, Durango 15
Only question is which running back Arbor View decides to feature.
Arbor View 35, Durango 20
Those Green Valley Gators won’t sneak up on the opposition anymore.
Green Valley 41, Valley 7
The Gators defense is probably the most underrated unit in town.

The Bone Game will only be important if Rancho gets competitive. Won't happen this year.

Watch Out: Wildcats are getting better as the season goes on.

Canyon Springs starts out strong in defense of its Northeast crown.
Canyon Springs 42, Silverado 19
Pioneers have some defensive playmakers — Tobias Carson and Fabian Leos Baca among that group.

Basic’s passing attack, after being held silent last week, returns to its high-scoring ways.
Basic 49, Eldorado 12
Wolves can't disappoint two weeks in a row, can they?

Brewer's right: There should be a lot of points in this game.

Liberty won't struggle this year against Coronado.

Cougars keep it close against the more-talented Patriots for the second year in a row.

Spring Valley's offense will run into problems this week.
Palo Verde 35, Spring Valley 7
After forfeiting previous wins, Shadow Ridge again breaks its double digit losing streak.
Shadow Ridge 32, Sierra Vista 26
Mustangs get their first win of the season again. Makes no sense, I agree.
Shadow Ridge 41, Sierra Vista 32
Does anyone remember the 2006 playoff match-up between these two? Too bad this year won’t be as close.
Gorman 61, Cimarron 12
With or without Nate Starks, Gaels roll over Spartans.
Gorman 63, Cimarron 7
Just like the playoffs the past two years, Centennial will win because of its size and strength up front.
Centennial 29, Desert Oasis 15
Coby Newton runs wild.
Centennial 26, Desert Oasis 18
Upset of the week: Bonanza takes care of Legacy in a surprising result.
Bonanza 43, Legacy 37
Can't see Longhorns losing unless they make more mistakes than a comic-strip klutz.
Legacy 34, Bonanza 21
I have picked against Boulder City every game this year. And lost. Not this week.

An upset isn't out of the question, but I'm not bold enough to pick it.

Clark prevails in a battle of teams searching for their first win.

Good to know one of these teams will get their first win.

Mojave, just like it did last year, will give Cheyenne fits before coming up short.
Cheyenne 30, Mojave 28
Have to go with an upset every once in a while, even if it's a reach like this one.
Mojave 34, Cheyenne 30
Faith Lutheran’s passing game could be the best in the Division I-A.
Faith Lutheran 40, Pahrump 6
Crusaders are going to pass more than Brewer at the craps table. And find more success, too.
Faith Lutheran 41, Pahrump 13
Desert Pines playing better each week.
Desert Pines 30, Virgin Valley 16
Bulldogs can't stay out of close games. They deserve a few breaks after last week's near-miss against Boulder City.
