Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer bring all the ranting and raving any Southern Nevada high school football fan could ever want on the fourth episode of this year's podcast. Brewer further fuels his detractors at Centennial and predicts a lopsided victory in favor of Bishop Gorman. Does Keefer agree? Listen to find out.

For the first time since 2009, the victory bell will reside at Silverado.

Silverado defeated Foothill 43-22 in one of Henderson’s biggest rivalries Friday night. It eased the sting from the Skyhawks' season-opening 41-17 loss to Coronado.

“We’re like a painting right now,” Silverado coach Andy Ostolaza said. “We’re not there yet, but hopefully we’ll get the painting finished by the time we get to league.”

Silverado threw a couple different colors into its palette against Foothill, frequently lining up Alex Aragon in the backfield to take attention off of fellow running back Alex Cater.

It worked, as both Cater and Aragon contributed in the upset. Cater rushed for 225 yards and four touchdowns.

Silverado also scored defensive and special teams touchdowns. Abdurahim Cravin got the Skyhawks on the board first with a 75-yard interception return. Daniel Savage took a kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown.

Silverado was ahead 33-12 at halftime.

“It was good to get a win, especially because we have Eldorado next and then start league with Canyon Springs,” Ostolaza said. “We needed to get a win somewhere to get our momentum on track.”

  1. Wow. Losing their entire offensive line to graduation apparently too much even for one of the best WR/QB combos in town to overcome. Basic is going to run up the score in this rivalry game.
