Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer dissect this week's high school football games. It's a competitive slate of contests highlighted by the Southeast and Northeast divisions crowning champions. The boys disagree on their picks. Listen to hear who you agree with.

Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis had no complaints after his team’s 42-6 victory against Boulder City Friday night.

The Pirates played a complete game in every sense. They rushed for 266 yards as a team, passed for more than 100 yards and returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

“It was a pretty dominating effort,” Lewis said.

Zach Waite carried the ball 16 times for 113 yards. Kelan Weiss went 10-for-13 for 112 yards. Riley Solomon returned an interception for a 99-yard touchdown to end one of Boulder City’s only long drives.

Moapa Valley (4-4) will now play archrival Virgin Valley (7-1) two weeks in a row. They end the regular season against each other in the Hammer Game and then play in the first round of the 3A state playoffs.

“The first game is going to be a chess match to see who wins without giving too much away,” Lewis said. “They are well-coached and we are always excited to play them.”

Boulder City (3-6) ends its season with a home game against the Durango JV team.
