Dominance of Moapa and Gorman; who's No. 2: Liberty or Arbor View?

  • You need to upgrade your Flash Player

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer compare the run Moapa Valley is on in the Division 1-A to the one Bishop Gorman has put together this season in the upper decision. Other familiar arguments arise, including a debate on whether Arbor View should be considered as the second-best team in the state. Give us your thoughts in the comments.

Canyon Springs dominated Rancho 51-0, looking sharp after a mediocre win last week and two losses prior to that. They improve to 4-2.

Canyon coach Hunkie Cooper was effusive in his praise, especially for the defense. "You could hear them playing, and that's a sign the intensity was there," he said.

Cooper also credited starting quarterback Stevie Farmer with effective early passing, receiver Diamante Luna and Michael Gayden, who blocked a punt and caught a big fourth down pass near the end zone.

The Pioneers got a scare when star running back D.J. Pumphrey came up limping in the first half. Cooper said it was a shot to the shin and isn't serious. Pumphrey ran for a touchdown and kicked a field goal.

Canyon Springs plays Valley next week at home.
