Keefer's Picks
Last Week:
16-2

Season:
112-25

The battle for the Northeast's final playoff spot goes to the Gang Green.
Rancho 26, Eldorado 24

Lost some confidence in Eldorado with last week's narrow escape against Chaparral.
Rancho 33, Eldorado 28

Del Sol picks up another close win against the Wolf Pack.
Del Sol 21, Basic 19

I could be totally wrong, but it's too hard to pick a team that has lost three straight and four of five games.
Del Sol 28, Basic 27

Liberty is my team to beat every Friday night.
Liberty 32, Foothill 25

I want to believe in upsets.
Foothill 24, Liberty 21

Silverado keeps its season alive with a win.
Silverado 30, Green Valley 19

Gators will find it tough to match up with Ladale Jackson and Izaiah Thurmon.
Silverado 36, Green Valley 16

Canyon Springs still is a year away from challenging Las Vegas.
Las Vegas 38, Canyon Springs 18

Brewer talked me out of picking Canyon Springs on our podcast.
Las Vegas 28, Canyon Springs 21

Desert Pines has done a good job turning its season around.
Desert Pines 22, Chaparral 13

Desert Pines will have no problems this week.
Desert Pines 34, Chaparral 13

Valley is better than its one-win record shows.
Valley 49, Sunrise Mountain 7

Don't know if the Vikings are better than one win, but they are better than the Miners.
Valley 56, Sunrise Mountain 20

Clark still is in the hunt for a playoff berth.
Clark 31, Bonanza 26

Rolling two standard dice for this one. Even is Bonanza, odd is Clark. It's an eight.
Bonanza 40, Clark 35

Here's hoping Gorman plays its taxi squad from start to finish.
Gorman 50, Pahrump Valley 0

Should be more like the video game Crazy Taxi, what with all the excessive speed and running things over.
Gorman 72, Pahrump Valley 0

Palo Verde will win battle in the trenches.
Palo Verde 56, Faith Lutheran 18

Crusaders come back from last week's loss and keep it close against Palo Verde, at least for a little while.
Palo Verde 49, Faith Lutheran 24

Easy victory for the Grizzlies.
Spring Valley 32, Sierra Vista 6

Spring Valley is 3-1 at home this season.
Spring Valley 45, Sierra Vista 7

Don't you love this three-team league? What a shame.
Moapa Valley 32, Boulder City 12

Moapa Valley can't overlook Boulder City with rival Virgin Valley on the horizon next week.
Moapa Valley 35, Boulder City 7

Legacy hitting stride late, will win fourth straight game
Legacy 22, Centennial 16

Another game that could go either way. I'll take Centennial to be different.
Centennial 28, Legacy 16

Everyone will beat Mojave this fall.
Cheyenne 43, Mojave 20

Can Cheyenne bounce back from a poor performance last week? Probably.
Cheyenne 34, Mojave 14

Cimarron-Memorial's running game too much for Shadow Ridge.
Cimarron 28, Shadow Ridge 8

Spartans are not going to give up on their playoff hopes that easy.
Cimarron 35, Shadow Ridge 17

Virgin Valley is better than this 4A team.
Virgin Valley 30, Coronado 12

This game could be close, but Bulldogs are more talented.
Virgin Valley 28, Coronado 26

Desert Oasis doesn't have the size up front to bang with Durango. Still, they find a way to win.
Desert Oasis 23, Durango 20

When they are at their best, the Trailblazers can compete with anyone.
Durango 48, Desert Oasis 35
