Several upsets dotted the second week of high school football and ruined many prognostications.
The records of Las Vegas Sun sports editors Ray Brewer and Case Keefer show as much, as they’re worse than in past years entering week 3. Will things stabilize or continue to spiral in week 3?
Check below for our picks on every game.
The week of September 8
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.
A new winning streak begins for the Gaels.
Bishop Gorman 31, Miami Central 19
Miami Central (Fla.)
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
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.)
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.)
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
