Western wins in overtime

Western ended its three-game losing streak with a 28-22 overtime win over Durango.

The first overtime play ended up being the tiebreaker as Devin Wiedemann threw to Dante Warren to score a touchdown.

"Dante Warren had four huge passes," coach John Isola said.

On the first play of the game, senior Thomas Johnson caught an 80-yard pass from Weiderman to score a touchdown.

Isola also said Terryon Marion turned in a good performance with three interceptions during the game.

Durango coach Gary Maki said his team played it close all the way through.

"We controlled the ball most of the game," he said, "but when plays needed to be made they were able to make them.

"We played well," he said. "It was a game that we should have won but we let it get away from us."

Las Vegas gets another win

Las Vegas got its sixth-straight win Friday night with a 36-25 victory over Canyon Springs.

Canyon Springs coach Chris Littmann said his team held the lead late into the third quarter when it made some mistakes that ended up costing it the game.

"We were in it the whole time," he said.

"We ran the ball pretty well," he said. "We just didn't execute at critical times."

Littmann said his team performed well all night and is starting to mature.

"There was more good than bad," he said. "Our pass protection was better than it's been all year."

Valley squeaks by Coronado

Valley upset Coronado’s home game Friday night, winning a close match, 34-31.

“We beat ourselves,” Coronado head coach John Mannion said. “We had two touchdowns taken off because of penalties.”

Coronado had some highlights with senior Marcus Garcia, who ran for about 100 yards, making the most out of his last night playing on his home field. Junior Matt Chavarria, who was injured most of the season, had a breakout performance making several catches and great runs, Mannion said.

“We made stupid mistakes … we had plenty of opportunities to win the football game and just jumped offsides at inappropriate times and missed blocks when we shouldn’t have,” he said.

Palo Verde pummels Mojave

Palo Verde defeated Mojave at home Friday night, 41-0.

“We were up 34-0 at halftime,” Palo Verde head coach Darwin Rost said. “Their coach asked for a running clock and then we scored another touchdown to make it 41-0.”

Rost said two of his players stood out during the evening: senior quarterback Kelly Zurowski went seven-of-seven for 144 yards and senior Chaz Thomas ran for 88 yards.

Palo Verde faces Legacy next Friday.

Rancho knocks off Eldorado

Eldorado fell to Rancho, 28-7, on Friday night.

Eldorado head coach Leon Evans said his team had a good first half but played poorly in the second half when Rancho scored 21 points.

“We haven’t scored a lot of points this season and we just need to get in the end zone,” Evans said.

Eldorado travels to Las Vegas High next week while Rancho plays Valley at home.

Gorman gets shutout win

Bishop Gorman shut out Pahrump, 55-0.

Senior running back Kawika Antolin lead Gorman in rushing with 109 yards and two touchdowns. Senior running back Matt Malone rushed for 48 yards with a touchdown.
