Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer preview the two biggest games of the week, Desert Pines at Moapa Valley and Green Valley at Canyon Springs. Keefer also takes amusement at Brewer's yearning for the old days before spread offenses overtook the football landscape.

Legacy is a couple of wins away from claiming a home playoff spot and second place in the Southwest division.

The Longhorns will be favored in each of their two final regular-season games, against Cimarron-Memorial and Centennial, especially after providing another smack down Thursday night. Legacy defeated Desert Oasis 49-21 despite what coach Dave Snyder characterized as a down night.

“We got a little big-headed and went through the motions,” Snyder said. “We controlled the game, but didn’t play particularly well. We were just flat.”

Snyder’s displeasure didn’t start until after the first quarter, in which Legacy went ahead 21-0. He sensed the Longhorns started to lose their killer instinct shortly after DeMichael Walker scored his first of four touchdowns.

“We can’t be doing that,” Snyder said. “We can’t be taking anyone for granted.”

Walker finished with around 200 yards. Casey Hughes and Cody Polvado were also productive in the rushing department, scoring touchdowns.

Devin Williams threw one touchdown pass, to Nieamiah Lane, and a couple of long completions to Damion Robinson-Stallings.
