Roundup of other Las Vegas area prep games

Spring Valley looked like it was cruising to a win, but someone forgot to tell Desert Pines.

The Grizzlies were up 20-0 in the fourth, but special teams errors allowed Desert Pines to jump back into the game. Spring Valley was able to pull out the win, 20-14.

"They just kept coming at us. We made some critical errors on our special teams," Grizzlies head coach Kelly Murphy said. He praised his team's defensive play on the evening.

Desert Pines coach Paul Bennett said despite the loss, he saw improvement in his team this week.

"We're still miscuing on offense," he said. "We made it interesting late in the game. We had a chance to win late."

Arbor View dominates Durango

Arbor View walked away with a 52-7 win Friday night against Durango.

Arbor View head coach Dan Barnson said the goal this week was to keep the ball in his team's hands -- and it did just that.

Senior fullback Gabe Toney helped Arbor View to victory with three touchdowns. Arbor View shut out Durango until the fourth quarter, when the Blazers put a touchdown on the board.

“We are a really young team and made young mistakes," Durango head coach Gary Maki said. "The effort was there but it just didn’t happen."

Arbor View will take on Green Valley next week, while Durango will be at Liberty.

Cheyenne blanks Western

Cheyenne pitched a dominating shutout Friday night.

The Desert Shields won 52-0 over Western. Cheyenne head coach Charles Anthony said he was happy with his team's performance -- especially his defense.

"The game plan we put together, they did a pretty good job running it," he said of his team.

Desert Oasis gets shutout win

Desert Oasis left for Pahrump on Friday afternoon and came back that evening with a win.

The Diamondbacks shut out Pahrump Valley, 27-0.

"Offensively, we're getting better," Desert Oasis coach Matt Jenkins said. "Defensively, we're a little ahead of where we are offensively."

A late punt return for a touchdown sealed the win for the Diamondbacks.

Wildcats edges Snow Canyon, 47-40

Las Vegas High went to Snow Canyon High and came away with a 47-40 win.

Chris Faircloth said he's happy with his team's offensive performance, but Las Vegas needs some work on special teams and defense -- both of which had breakdowns Friday night.

"We're not playing very sound," Faircloth said. "We just need to shore up our special teams."
