Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and Steve Silver break down last week's lopsided high school football contests and preview this Friday's upcoming games. They also discuss the latest news on the neck injury to Shadow Ridge's Zak Hill.

The Foothill High defense forced nine turnovers and scored the winning touchdown on Friday night in a 12-0 victory against Liberty.

“Our defense played real well,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “They played very physical and dominated.”

Rico Meeks’ 55-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the first half gave the Falcons the lead for good.

“The fumble recovery in the second quarter was huge,” Redmond said. “But our defense didn’t stop creating turnovers.”

The Falcons padded their lead in the final seconds of the first half when quarterback Parker Riggin threw a 5-yard touchdown to Tyrel Garner.

Both teams are now 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Southeast Division.
