Moapa Valley finds success once again in the Hammer Game
Saturday, October 15, 2011
high school football: Moapa held rival Virgin Valley to less than 40 yards of total offense

The rival 3A high schools began competing for the de facto trophy in the 1950s, but had to stop in the 1970s when the prank of stealing the hammer from the winning team became too prevalent. The hammer wasn’t reintroduced until the two schools’ principals reached an agreement in 2007.<
