    Is the short week unfair for playoff teams?

    Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are pumped up for all the high-stakes games going down Thursday night. But why can't they be played on Friday?

    This is arguably the most anticipated week of regular-season high school football games in Southern Nevada this fall.

    And, yes, because the Clark County School District is observing next week’s Nevada Day this Friday, all games will be played on Thursday this week.

    The most intriguing matchup is in the Northwest League, where undefeated Arbor View travels to nemesis Palo Verde in the regular-season finale. The winner will get the Northwest League title and No. 1 playoff seed. Arbor View, which opened in 2005, has never beaten Palo Verde. The teams run the same double-wing offense, and for the past two years, have played closely contested games.

    In the Sunrise Region, two teams after tonight's games will be in the driver’s seat to capture the Southeast and Northeast league titles. Both leagues conclude their regular season next week, meaning no titles can be won tonight.

    In the Southeast, Liberty will put its 20-game league winning streak on the line at Basic in a game of undefeated league opponents. In the Northeast, defending league champion Canyon Springs visits Green Valley High in another game of undefeated league opponents.

    All four teams are expected to make deep playoff runs, and with the Sunrise title game doubling as the state semifinals, winning tonight could guarantee one team home field advantage through the postseason.

    Also tonight, Division-IA in Southern Nevada begins its postseason with four games.

    And, two appear to be evenly matched — Sunrise No. 3 seed Desert Pines at Sunset No. 2 Mojave; and Sunset No. 3 Faith Lutheran at Sunrise No. 2 Boulder City.

    In the other playoff games, top-seeded Moapa Valley is playing a Pahrump Valley team it beat by nearly 50 points already this fall. And Cheyenne, the other top-seed, is expected to have no troubles with Virgin Valley.
