The week of Nov. 13

Brewer's Picks
Last Week:

137-26 (.840)

Brewer vs. Silver

Las Vegas Sun reporters Ray Brewer and
Steve Silver attempt to pick
the winning team from prep contests
across the Las Vegas area.

Silver's Picks
Last Week:

131-32 (.804)

Gorman is too strong and physical. The Gaels will overmatch and wear down the Panthers.
Gorman 34, Palo Verde 20

Either way I expect a great game, but in an effort to be different, I'll go with the Panthers.
Palo Verde 27, Gorman 24

Cimarron makes amends for its fluke regular season loss to the Longhorns.
Cimarron 45, Legacy 19

Brewer thinks Cimarron is headed to the state championship. I beg to differ.
Legacy 31, Cimarron 28

Las Vegas begins its quest for a seventh straight Sunrise crown with a victory.
Las Vegas 27, Foothill 8

Wildcats ride the Farrell Victor train to victory.
Las Vegas 35, Foothill 20

Liberty doesn't have the athletes to match the speed of Canyon Springs.
Canyon Springs 32, Liberty 17

You never know which Liberty team is going to show up, but I'm still going to take the unpredictable Patriots.
Liberty 24, Canyon Springs 20

Reed scores four TDs to help coach Goroff eliminate his alma mater.
Del Sol 39, Valley 13

Perhaps the most lopsided playoff game of the week. Dragons cruise.
Del Sol 35, Valley 7

Desert Pines knows the drill — Basic controls the clock and its defense makes your offense look like a Pop Warner team. That's what happened earlier this fall.
Basic 21, Desert Pines 0

No superstars on this Basic squad, but plenty of heart and pure grit.
Basic 17, Desert Pines 7

Fernley coach Jeff Knutson won't enjoy his trip back to Overton, where he guided the Pirates to the 2000 state title.
Moapa Valley 38, Fernley 12

It kills me to do this, but the Pirates will come out on top.
Moapa Valley 28, Fernley 14

Tough commute up North for the Eagles.
Truckee 40, Boulder City 6

If Brewer is picking against Boulder City, then they really don't have a chance.
Truckee 31, Boulder City 13
