Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are back with their weekly look at high school football. In this episode, they debate how to rank Arbor View, Palo Verde, Green Valley and Liberty.

A career night from Vinny DeGeorge led Faith Lutheran to one of its biggest victories in recent memory Friday.

The Crusaders overtook first place in the Division 1-A Sunset division with an upset 32-25 win at Mojave. DeGeorge racked up nearly 300 all-purpose yards and scored four touchdowns.

The senior wide receiver’s first trip to the end zone came right before halftime when he returned a kickoff 89 yards for a touchdown after a Mojave score by Ty Flanagan.

The first of DeGeorge’s three receiving touchdowns off of passes from Jacob Deaville, who finished 10 for 15 for 250 yards and four touchdowns, came early in the third quarter to put Faith Lutheran ahead 17-7.

But Mojave responded with three unanswered touchdowns, including Flanagan’s second to go up 25-17 at the beginning of the fourth quarter.

Then, Deaville-to-DeGeorge struck again, this time from 73 yards out. The game-winning touchdown came on a Deaville pass to Mark Rubalcaba before DeGeorge added another score as insurance.
