The week of Nov. 13
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.
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.
