Brewer vs. Keefer

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

Keefer's Picks
Last Week:

103-27 (.792)

Las Vegas’ domination in the Bone Game rivalry continues for a 16th straight year.
Las Vegas 53, Rancho 16

Rancho is getting healthy and peaking at the moment, so it should find a way to stay competitive here.
Las Vegas 41, Rancho 28

You have to give credit to Arbor View for scheduling this game.
Gorman 47, Arbor View 7

It will be closer than last year when the Gaels knocked the Aggies out of the playoffs 49-14.
Gorman 38, Arbor View 13

The Battle for Boulder Highway is one of my favorite games of the year.
Foothill 32, Basic 23

This has the makings for one of the best games of the year. These teams are evenly-matched to an eerie degree.
Foothill 24, Basic 23

Liberty is in position to go undefeated in Southeast division. Dynasty in the making?
Liberty 40, Coronado 14

Is that the sound of Brewer giving Liberty some credit? Nah, couldn’t be.
Liberty 29, Coronado 14

The Dragons will snap their four-game losing streak. In Chris Marshall I trust.
Del Sol 32, Green Valley 29

Blind loyalty is a dangerous thing. Brewer’s insistence on picking Del Sol every week is allowing me back in the race for the best record.
Green Valley 36, Del Sol 27

Desert Pines won’t have any problems this week.
Desert Pines 54, Sunrise Mountain 19

Desert Pines falling to Rancho last week was one of the biggest upsets of the year.
Desert Pines 42, Sunrise Mountain 6

No upset special in the Cleat Game. I’ll take the better team, my Cowboys.
Chaparral 23, Eldorado 19

For thoughts, reference my first sentence of the Del Sol vs. Green Valley description.
Eldorado 34, Chaparral 13

Canyon Springs continues its winning streak.
Canyon Springs 43, Valley 22

The Pioneers are confident that they can win Northeast division.
Canyon Springs 35, Valley 6

It hasn’t been pretty all year, but Durango will be the No. 4 seed from the Southwest.
Durango 23, Sierra Vista 7

Mountain Lions are a year away from being able to beat the teams at the top of the division.
Durango 36, Sierra Vista 14

This game is a big deal for the players on both teams.
Bonanza 34, Spring Valley 19

Bonanza finally breaks through to beat rival Spring Valley and earns the banner.
Bonanza 40, Spring Valley 22

Desert Oasis is gearing up for the playoffs.
Desert Oasis 50, Pahrump Valley 6

Diamondbacks are going to enter the playoffs on a seven-game winning streak.
Desert Oasis 39, Pahrump Valley 12

Centennial must win to stay in contention for the No. 3 seed from the Northwest.
Centennial 28, Legacy 19

These two teams seemingly love getting in dramatic games. Expecting another nail-biter here.
Centennial 27, Legacy 23

Cheyenne can clinch a playoff spot with a victory.
Cheyenne 45, Mojave 13

Correction: Cheyenne will clinch a playoff spot with a victory.
Cheyenne 52, Mojave 20

Palo Verde is one of two undefeated teams in the Las Vegas valley.
Palo Verde 47, Faith Lutheran 0

[Enter a statement of praise for the Palo Verde defense here].
Palo Verde 37, Faith Lutheran 0

Cimarron closes its season with a victory.
Cimarron 30, Shadow Ridge 3

Spartans look and sound like a playoff team, but they aren’t. Such is life in the uber-competitive Northwest.
Cimarron 27, Shadow Ridge 0

The long trip to Overton is not easy on the Skyhawks.
Moapa Valley 23, Silverado 12

Two talented running backs worth watching here — Moapa’s Conner Mortensen and Silverado’s Izaiah Thurmon.
Silverado 24, Moapa Valley 21

The McKinney brothers are the difference for Clark.
Clark 32, Boulder City 19

Picked against Clark so many times this year that I think I owe them one in this toss-up.
Clark 28, Boulder City 20
