Silverado is improved, but still no match for the Patriots.
Liberty 33, Silverado 16

Keep an eye on the battles in the trenches, which should be fun with these two hard-hitting teams.
Liberty 27, Silverado 15

NIAA officials need to attend this game for the next realignment talks. Needs to be done by sport.
Las Vegas 64, Valley 0

Vegas gets back to “rocking the house.”
Las Vegas 57, Valley 7

Battle for Boulder Highway is evenly matched this year. Coin flip goes to Foothill.
Foothill 33, Basic 26

Justin Jackson is the difference in this game for the Falcons.
Foothill 37, Basic 30

More on realignment: Eldorado would compete for a Division 1A title if in correct league.
Coronado 50, Eldorado 13

Cougars’ offense needs to get rhythm back after rough showing last week.
Coronado 35, Eldorado 14

Realignment…..
Arbor View 54, Bonanza 0

Brewer might have a point.
Arbor View 62, Bonanza 6

The winner avoids Gorman in the first round of the playoffs.
Cimarron 19, Desert Oasis 13

Tyeree Johnson breaks out for the second straight game.
Desert Oasis 22, Cimarron 20

Legacy won’t keep it close against Gorman this season.
Gorman 56, Legacy 0

I think Legacy can score, but won’t be able to do much else.
Bishop Gorman 66, Legacy 6

If realignment was done sport-by-sport, this game would not happen.
Palo Verde 49, Durango 0

PV Nation is rising.
Palo Verde 43, Durango 7

I’m installing Moapa Valley as a minus-300 favorite to win the Division 1A state title.
Moapa Valley 56, Boulder City 7

Minus-300? I think Moapa Valley wins it too, but give me the field at that price.
Moapa Valley 56, Boulder City 16

Del Sol prevents Sunrise Mountain from program’s first winning streak.
Del Sol 25, Sunrise Mountain 19

Game will come down to the fourth quarter, where both teams will have a chance to win.
Del Sol 27, Sunrise Mountain 26

How ‘bout my Cowboys? Four straight. Well done, fellas.
Chaparral 48, Virgin Valley 20

Have to admit, Brewer, the Cowboys have been very impressive this season.
Chaparral 34, Virgin Valley 21

I honestly have no clue what’s going to happen in this one. I’ll take the best player on the field.
Sierra Vista 30, Spring Valley 26

Spring Valley defense is dominant.
Spring Valley 20, Sierra Vista 18

Faith Lutheran despite losing first two league games, could still win Division 1A Sunset.
Faith Lutheran 40, Pahrump Valley 12

Crusaders will beat the Trojans up front.
Faith Lutheran 28, Pahrump Valley 7

Teams headed in opposite directions.
Clark 20, Mojave 18

At some point, you’ve got to trust the better team to fix their mistakes.
Mojave 30, Clark 28

Cheyenne spoils Western’s homecoming.
Cheyenne 49, Western 0

Desert Shields are one of the biggest surprise this season.
Cheyenne 44, Western 14

I feel so bad for Rancho losing by one point last week. Losing streak won’t end against DP.
Desert Pines 45, Rancho 13

Won’t be pretty.
Desert Pines 58, Rancho 6

GV might be the city’s most confident team. Can’t blame them.
Green Valley 33, Canyon Springs 19

Familiar three-point margin of victory with a Frank Canales kick being the difference.
Green Valley 30, Canyon Springs 27

This game will be closer than you think.
Centennial 31, Shadow Ridge 22

You said that about Shadow Ridge’s game last week too. Didn’t work out so well.
Centennial 40, Shadow Ridge 14
