Las Vegas football players Vince Castro, Lahmed Evans and Joshua Mayfield Thursday, July 26, 2012.

The Las Vegas High football team had 520 yards of offense Friday in a 55-40 victory against visiting Foothill.

Andrew Moreland led the way with 220 rushing yards and five touchdowns for the Wildcats (3-1), which open Northeast League play next week by hosting Rancho in the Bone Game.

Elias Miller added 92 rushing yards and a touchdown, Vince Castro gained 54 yards and had a rushing touchdown, and Josh Mayfield had 90 receiving yards and a score.

“We played alright on offense, but defensively, we still have a few holes,” Las Vegas coach James Thurman said. “It’s just fundamentals. We need to block and tackle better.”

  1. Last nights performances by Green Valley and Canyon Springs continue to believe that Las Vegas is over rated and will finish 3rd at best in the NE. I'm unsure what to make of Silverado since they looked awful against Coronado but seem to be getting a rhythm, albeit against softer teams.

    But if Doxtator without Tyler Morris put up 448 yards passing against Vegas i'd be a worried wildcat. Vegas had everyone and their mother rush for a few yards but that would be expected against Foothill.
