    Early-morning rains won’t stop the high school football season from starting tonight for half of Southern Nevada’s teams.

    The wet weather from the morning has cleared up, and while the playing surface is still wet on most fields, nothing will stop the 2013 season from kicking off.

    The Division I-A season begins this week with all 12 teams in action, including Boulder City visiting Mojave. It’s a rematch of a game Mojave won last year by three points. Other games include: Virgin Valley at Faith Lutheran, Chaparral at Pahrump Valley and Desert Pines at Western.

    Some schools from the large-school Division I classification also have games tonight, all against out-of-state opponents. Last week, Las Vegas teams went 0-3 against out-of-state competition, putting added significance on teams to perform well tonight.

    Four-time defending state champion Bishop Gorman hosts respected California power Servite High of Orange County. It’s the third straight season the schools have played, including last year when Gorman won in blowout fashion.

    The Gaels are looking to get back to their winning ways after dropping their opener last week in the Sollenberger Classic to Mountain Pointe of Phoenix.

    Also today, Green Valley hosts Basha of Arizona, Shadow Ridge hosts Snow Canyon of Utah and Foothill travels into Utah to face Desert Hills.
