Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are back for another high school football discussion. They look at all the matchups this week and spend extra time on the Southeast, which begins league play this week.

The Bishop Gorman High football team scored on six of its first seven snaps Saturday in a 69-7 victory against visiting Clark.

Each of quarterback Anu Solomon's three completions went for touchdowns, while running back Shaquille Powell had three touchdowns and 101 rushing yards in limited action.

Nathen Starks added a receiving and rushing touchdown for the Gaels (4-1, 3-0 Southwest), and Justin Sweat returned a kick for a touchdown.

Additionally, Lorenzo Fertitta and Tajon Allen added rushing touchdowns.

Gorman was leading 48-7 after the first quarter and has outscored three league opponents 165-7. Clark (1-2 Southwest) was the first team to score on Gorman in league play.

  1. Well way to go Gorman I did a little investigating thinking MAYBE Sanchez allowed all his players on varsity to get into the game much to my surprise there were players on the bench who did not get to play WOW ! what a classy move, since I'm on the playing time allowed I also noticed that the back up kicker only was allowed 1 shot at a extra point with the score 34-0 in the first quarter he came in and missed well wouldn't you allow him another shot later in the game since the score at half time was 62-7, NO ! not the Gorman coach perhaps he was hurt NO ! just the Gorman way trying to look good by pounding their weaker opponents

  2. Welch, i gotta disagree. Gorman did everything possible to keep the score low. The problem was that Clark was just that bad. The starting offense played only the 1st quarter and the starting corner didnt even start and only got in the game in the 2nd quarter. As i have said before, its just very bad for Southern Nevada high school football in the discrepency of talent between Gorman and the other schools. Gorman's JV would have won by 40+ pts last night. i really think it will be better for everyone if the Gorman JV or even fresmen team played the varsity schedule. Cant blame the coaches. The only remaining game that will be worth watching is in 2 weeks against Servite from Southern California.
