Bishop Gorman 37, Crespi 18

Gaels are rollin’ now.
Bishop Gorman 27, Crespi 9

Coronado shows playoff win last year against GV wasn’t a fluke.
Coronado 30, Green Valley 28

No one says that win was a fluke just as no one says Coronado is as strong as Green Valley this year.
Green Valley 34, Coronado 20

Arbor View rushes for more than 300 yards, grabs big win.
Arbor View 40, Centennial 16

No way it’s that much of a blowout, but Arbor View spent all offseason thinking about this game after its playoff ouster.
Arbor View 27, Centennial 17

Palo Verde makes an opening game statement. The Panthers are back.
Palo Verde 42, Legacy 12

Got to pick an upset every now and then. Legacy is no walkover.

Could Las Vegas be the Sunrise’s best team? They look that way against Basic.

Desert Oasis defends its home turf in season opener.
Desert Oasis 19, Del Sol 13

Despite falling apart late, Del Sol showed some flashes in its first game.

First-game errors haunt Durango in what could have been a close game.

The Keenan Smith show continues for another week.

Upset special. Trojans are one of the most improved teams in the valley.

Closer than the experts — well the expert to the left — think.

These are the two best teams in the lower division. It’s my game of the week.

Based on history, just can’t pick the Mountain Lions to beat the Spartans.
