Season:
23-15 (.605)

A new winning streak begins for the Gaels.
Bishop Gorman 31, Miami Central 19

Miami Central (Fla.)
at
Bishop Gorman

Much like Gorman’s win over DeMatha, it’s close early but Gaels pull always late.
Bishop Gorman 34, Miami Central 17

Patriots clean up mistakes, get back on track.
Liberty 33, Alta 12

Alta (Utah)
at
Liberty

2-1 against out of state opponents. Not bad, Patriots.
Liberty 30, Alta 24

Take the best player on the field — Spring Valley’s Stanton.
Spring Valley 31, Sunrise Mountain 27

Take the best player on the field — Sunrise Mountain’s Trayvon Ward.
Sunrise Mountain 28, Spring Valley 25

Big-time test for Legacy’s offense.
Legacy 29, Palo Verde 19

Was planning to pick Palo Verde, but then I looked back at last year’s 45-15 loss.
Legacy 27, Palo Verde 24

Anyone have a calculator?
Faith Lutheran 48, Green Valley 33

Three weeks, three games decided in the final minute for the Gators.
Faith Lutheran 42, Green Valley 38

Three weeks, three running-clock wins for the Aggies.
Arbor View 52, Silverado 0

Aggies play angry. I like teams that play angry.
Arbor View 64, Silverado 6

Desert Pines gets its first points, win.
Desert Pines 23, Las Vegas 18

Becoming pretty unsure of the Jaguars, but they should be fine here.
Desert Pines 27, Las Vegas 18

Trailblazers improve to 3-0, but it’s not pretty.
Durango 34, Valley 19

Dare I say Durango has been one of the most impressive teams so far?
Durango 45, Valley 16

Spartans running the clock like the old days.
Cimarron 38, Cheyenne 17

It’s fun to have Cimarron back producing wins.
Cimarron 35, Cheyenne 10

Game of the week.
Shadow Ridge 29, Moapa Valley 27

Look out, Daxton Longman to Derek Reese is one of the top connections around.
Moapa Valley 36, Shadow Ridge 31

Back-to-back wins for the Chargers.
Clark 31, Del Sol 27

I guess apologies to Clark are in order after last week’s stunning blowout win against Virgin Valley.
Clark 42, Del Sol 27

Virgin Valley won’t lay an egg in consecutive weeks.
Virgin Valley 31, Mojave 22

Tawee Walker has a huge game, but it’s in a losing effort.
Virgin Valley 35, Mojave 34

Pahrump Valley gets into the win column.
Pahrump Valley 37, Rancho 13

This might be Trojans’ only win for a while.
Pahrump Valley 26, Rancho 16

Chap’s speed too much in rivalry game.
Chaparral 39, Eldorado 22

Wouldn’t be surprised if Sundevils awoke for competitive Cleat Game, but it’s tough to count on after two rough games to start the year.
Chaparral 33, Eldorado 18

Rule of thumb: Always take the California team vs. Nevada.
Mar Vista 42, Bonanza 8

Mar Vista (Calif.)
at
Bonanza

Bengals keep it closer than expected.
Mar Vista 34, Bonanza 20

Can’t break my rule, even if this game’s a coin flip.
Clayton Valley 25, Canyon Springs 24

Clayton Valley (Calif.)
at
Canyon Springs

Not so sure this is a coin flip, but I hope I’m wrong.
Clayton Valley 42, Canyon Springs 21

After beating Basic, I can't see Sierra Vista losing to Centennial.
Sierra Vista 25, Centennial 18

I don't know where to go with this one, but it's hard to deny what Sierra Vista did last week.
Sierra Vista 34, Centennial 31
