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.

Virgin Valley High's Humberto Urias threw a 14-yard scoring strike to Kyle Tostenson with 4:36 remaining Friday to the lead the Bulldogs’ football team past host Shadow Ridge, 20-16.

Virgin Valley trailed 14-6 at halftime but cut its deficit when Jr. Toscano returned the second half kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. The Bulldogs were successful on the two-point conversion attempt to even the score at 14.

Shadow Ridge eventually took a 16-14 lead on a safety when Urias was forced to knock the ball out of his end zone after a bad snap.

But Urias and Tostenson wouldn’t be denied, with the duo hooking up for the fourth time in the past two weeks for the game-winner. It was 3A classification Virgin Valley’s third straight win to open the season against 4A schools.

Tostenson had a 5-yard touchdown reception from Urias for the first points of the game. The duo hooked up twice last week in a win against Sierra Vista.
