Closer than most would think.
Centennial 23, Foothill 16

Falcons won’t have fun trying to bring down Rhamondre Stevenson.
Centennial 30, Foothill 17

I’ve said all along Gorman would be challenged by Utah power.
Bishop Gorman 27, Bingham 17

Not only is sophomore quarterback Tate Martell committed to Washington, but he looked good enough to be the Huskies’ starter already in last week’s win.
Bishop Gorman 40, Bingham 16

Good spot for Basic to get its offense fixed.
Basic 33, Valley 13

Don’t judge Wolves too much for performance in first game in rugged assignment against Liberty.
Basic 41, Valley 21

GV is the real deal. Defense improved. Offense already great.
Green Valley 34, Palo Verde 17

I don’t see Green Valley’s offense struggling for long.
Green Valley 28, Palo Verde 14

It’s a shame this rivalry game is no longer competitive.
Las Vegas 56, Rancho 0

Can Rancho score on Vegas? That’s the only thing to be decided.
Las Vegas 68, Rancho 0

Cimarron continues to develop its passing attack.
Cimarron 42, Durango 6

John Nelson tackles everything.
Cimarron 27, Durango 18

Arbor View makes opening week statement. Could be Aggies’ best all-time team.
Arbor View 45, Silverado 13

Skyhawks are no walkover.
Arbor View 34, Silverado 20

”The Banner Game” is still growing in tradition, goes this time to Spring Valley.
Spring Valley 32, Bonanza 7

Christian Tasi will run all over the Bengals.
Spring Valley 29, Bonanza 13

I usually take the team with the best player on the field. That’s Vista’s Broady.
Sierra Vista 40, Desert Oasis 6

Mountain Lions finally beat their rivals.
Sierra Vista 35, Desert Oasis 30

Legacy will be in for a long night against the best team in St. George.
Desert Hills 46, Legacy 0

A team that scored 18 on Gorman last year is going scoreless against Desert Hills? Please.
Desert Hills 24, Legacy 14

Liberty should make quick work of Shadow Ridge.
Liberty 45, Shadow Ridge 7

Patriots won’t lose to an in-state opponent during the regular season.
Liberty 38, Shadow Ridge 12

Faith Lutheran rebounds from opening week loss, easily handles Virgin Valley.
Faith Lutheran 40, Virgin Valley 13

Watch out for sophomore Christian Morris.
Faith Lutheran 28, Virgin Valley 20

Hurricane hands Moapa Valley a rare home loss.
Hurricane 30, Moapa Valley 25

Have a feeling Pirates find a way to pull this out.
Moapa Valley 28, Hurricane 27

Mojave is banged up, but Ty Flanagan is healthy and that’s all the Rattlers need.
Mojave 43, Chaparral 18

Rattlers need to be more consistent this year, and I think they start here.
Mojave 40, Chaparral 12

Eldorado has a hangover from winning “Cleat Game” vs. Chaparral, rallies past Sunrise.
Eldorado 24, Sunrise Mountain 22

Joshua Brown and Tyler Spivey don’t believe in hangovers.
Eldorado 34, Sunrise Mountain 20

Looks like I’m on the Pahrump Valley bandwagon.
Pahrump Valley 29, Boulder City 21

Experienced Trojans keep rolling.
Pahrump Valley 20, Boulder City 12

Del Sol doubles its win total from 2013.
Del Sol 43, Western 9

Favorable schedule could have Dragons finishing over .500 this season.
Del Sol 26, Western 12

Can’t wait for this game to decide hoops state champions. In football, it’s no contest.
Desert Pines 48, Clark 23

One of these teams will prove they’re Division 1A contenders with a victory.
Desert Pines 32, Clark 22

Despite first-game mistakes, Canyon Springs does enough to beat Chey-Town in battle of North Las Vegas.
Canyon Springs 32, Cheyenne 14

Fully expecting Pioneers to reload this season.
Canyon Springs 42, Cheyenne 19
