Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer look ahead to another week of high school football and detail why the Northwest division appears to be the strongest in town. Palo Verde, Arbor View, Centennial, Cimarron and Cheyenne have all looked impressive in the early season.

Aaron Love rushed for 108 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries Friday to lead the visiting Green Valley High football team past Boulder City, 35-16.

It was the first victory for new Gators (1-1 overall) coach Brian Castro.

“Anytime you win a game, you are happy and you don’t take it for granted. At least that’s what I’ve learned,” Castro said. “We’ll take it any way we can get it.”

Quarterback Jacob Olim completed 18 of 26 passes for 194 yards and another touchdown, and backup quarterback Quintin Kohorst closed the scoring with an 8-yard run.

Green Valley didn’t play last week and was rusty at times getting back into the flow of the game.

“We have to minimize the mental mistakes. We made too many errors tonight and I felt that really gave them life,” Castro said. “We aren’t a good enough team to make mistakes.”

The Gators play Basic (1-1) next week in the annual Henderson Bowl rivalry game. It’s a contest Green Valley has lost for a record three straight years.
