Silver's Picks
Last Week:
10-5

Season:
67-22

Green Valley will win its first league game.
Green Valley 15, Coronado 13

Can Green Valley recover from a brutal blowout to Gorman?
Green Valley 20, Coronado 7

Del Sol has hung on for victories the last three week. It won't be so fortunate against the 'Hawks.
Silverado 27, Del Sol 19

Silverado is a great team, but Del Sol seems to have luck on its side and we all know how important that is in this city.
Del Sol 28, Silverado 21

Basic should have beat Del Sol last week. The Wolves will correct their mistakes against Liberty.
Basic 31, Liberty 18

Basic is much tougher than most people realize.
Basic 24, Liberty 14

Desert Pines looks sharp in getting back on track.
Desert Pines 32, Valley 6

This is a great week for Desert Pines to start that playoff push.
Desert Pines 35, Valley 7

Did you know Las Vegas coach Chris Faircloth is a Chap grad — just like me? So, coach please be gentle on Friday night.
Las Vegas 50, Chaparral 0

Brewer can feel the pain already. This one is over before it starts.
Las Vegas 56, Chaparral 6

Canyon Springs is a legitimate contender.
Canyon Springs 42, Rancho 12

I have been pleasantly surprised by Canyon Springs this season.
Canyon Springs 35, Rancho 10

This longtime rivalry used to be one of the best games each fall. Not anymore.
Gorman 43, Bonanza 7

Hopefully no brawls this week because once again Gorman wins big.
Gorman 50, Bonanza 14

Desert Oasis will make the playoffs this fall. Not bad for a second year school.
Desert Oasis 32, Clark 22

Desert Oasis has a chance to run the table the rest of the year.
Desert Oasis 28, Clark 14

Spring Valley stops losing skid.
Spring Valley 39, Pahrump 6

Spring Valley has to pick it up if they want to make the playoffs.
Spring Valley 31, Pahrump 12

Anyone have a coin? I will take Western in a game that could go either way.
Western 19, Sierra Vista 16

Just to be different I'll go with Sierra Vista.
Sierra Vista 21, Western 20

Arbor View wins its second straight.
Arbor View 36, Faith Lutheran 13

Arbor View has a lot of ground to make up in order to see the postseason.
Arbor View 30, Faith Lutheran 10

Cheyenne can't find a replacement for injured Xavian Johnson.
Centennial 23, Cheyenne 19

Cheyenne gave Palo Verde a bit of a scare. I'll pick the upset this week.
Cheyenne 28, Centennial 20

And the Northwest Division champion is ...
Palo Verde 32, Legacy 19

What a bruising game this is going to be. I'm sticking with the Panthers.
Palo Verde 24, Legacy 17

Shadow Ridge hangs on for its first — and more than likely only — win of the season.
Shadow Ridge 14, Mojave 12

I really don't have a reason, but I'm going with Mojave.
Mojave 21, Shadow Ridge 13

This non-league tilt will more than likely be a preview of next month's Sunset Regional quarterfinals. I will take Cimarron over Durango in both games.
Cimarron 29, Durango 13

Another great matchup. I like Durango's tenacity, but Cimarron is too big and too fast for Trailblazers.
Cimarron 35, Durango 27
