Upset over the outlandish scores posted around the valley last week, Las Vegas Sun sports reporter Ray Brewer loses his sanity on this week's podcast. Co-host Case Keefer tries to stay out of the way during his rant on defense, but has plenty to add on other topics — including impressive games from Arbor View and Bishop Gorman, "the hut drill" and the two highly-anticipated games in Henderson on Friday.
“We knew we were going to have a lot of tight games like this in our league,” Cimarron coach John Parcells said. “We knew it was going to come down to making a couple plays.”
Making those plays is easier with a battering-ram fullback like senior Desean Lewis, who broke out for the Spartans against the Diamondbacks.
Lewis rushed for more than 150 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries. He also converted on a handful of fourth-and-one situations where Parcells passed on punting.
“I’ve got a lot of faith in our guys to pick up what we need in short yardage,” Parcells said.
Cimarron scored 21 unanswered points after trailing 13-7 to take a commanding two-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter. Desert Oasis pieced together a rally for another score, but it was too late to do anything else.
The Spartans controlled the time of possession all night with Lewis and Justin Davis, who rushed for 177 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.
