    Las Vegas Sun sports reporters spend extra time this week discussing impending matchups between Green Valley and Coronado and Centennial and Arbor View. They also look back on the Henderson Bowl and Bishop Gorman's thrilling victory. ***Note: We apologize for the audio-level issues and are looking into correcting the malfunction for next week.

    In some weeks during the high school football season in Southern Nevada, the schedule doesn’t lead to much anticipation.

    There aren’t games pitting rivals and most contests wind up being decided by lopsided fashion.

    That won’t be the case tonight. It’s arguably the best week of games in years, especially considering it's the nonleague portion of the season.

    The schedule is highlighted by a pair of revenge games. Centennial travels to host Arbor View, and Green Valley visits Coronado in a rematch of regional semifinal games from last year.

    Centennial ended the Arbor View season last year, 14-9, in a hard-fought Sunset semifinal game. While Centennial graduated most of its key-performers from 2012, this year’s game is expected to be equally physical and closely contested.

    Plus, the schools are within a few miles of each other in the Northwest.

    Green Valley has had this game against Coronado circled on its calendar since the schedule was released. The Henderson schools, which are also closely located, split two games last season.

    Green Valley erased a 19-point deficit in the second half to win the first meeting in the regular season, but Coronado returned the favor in the Sunrise semifinals to end the Green Valley season.

    Green Valley was the No. 1 seed in the playoffs and expected to cruise past Coronado. Then, Coronado struck early and forced Green Valley into mistakes offensively for the upset.

    The schedule-makers also got it right in the Division I-A with a rematch of last year’s Southern League semifinal between visiting Mojave and Moapa Valley. Last year, the game went down to the wire with Mojave’s team of young players almost upsetting perennial power Moapa Valley.

    Well, those younger Mojave players are one year older, and some feel the Rattlers are the team to beat in the Division I-A, and not Moapa Valley. We’ll find that answer later tonight.

    Other games of note include: Palo Verde at Legacy, Basic at Foothill, and Silverado at Foothill.

    We’ll keep you posted all night as scores become final.
