Dominance of Moapa and Gorman; who's No. 2: Liberty or Arbor View?

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer compare the run Moapa Valley is on in the Division 1-A to the one Bishop Gorman has put together this season in the upper decision. Other familiar arguments arise, including a debate on whether Arbor View should be considered as the second-best team in the state. Give us your thoughts in the comments.

Arbor View High’s Rasheem Parks passed for a pair of touchdowns Friday night to lead the undefeated Aggies to a 57-6 victory against host Shadow Ridge.

Parks completed 2-of-3 passes for 106 yards, connecting with Jacob Speaks for a 58-yard touchdown and Jacob Parker for a 48-yard scoring strike. Arbor View led 50-0 at halftime.

Arbor View will likely be undefeated in two weeks when it faces Palo Verde in the regular season finale, where the winner would claim the Northwest League title and No. 1 playoff seed.

“It’s hard work with these kids,” Arbor View coach Dan Barnson said. “These kids come and work hard every day for us. We work at the things that need to be corrected and prepare one game at a time.”

Instead of looking ahead to the showdown with Palo Verde, Barnson insists his team’s sole focus in next week’s game against a Sierra Vista squad still searching for its first win.

“It’s an old cliche, but we take it one game at a time,” the coach said.

Sophomore Herman Grey had 72 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries in helping Arbor View (7-0 overall, 3-0 Northwest) rush for 396 yards. Ricky Clark added 104 yards and a touchdown on four carries, Anthony Smith rushed for 62 yards and a touchdown, and Salah Boyce carries the ball twice for 39 yards and a touchdown.
