Division titles on the line

Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer dissect this week's high school football games. It's a competitive slate of contests highlighted by the Southeast and Northeast divisions crowning champions. The boys disagree on their picks. Listen to hear who you agree with.

A relentless effort from the Spring Valley defense led to a 36-0 shutout victory over Sierra Vista.

At one point, the Mountain Lions had first-and-goal from the 1-yard line and couldn’t punch the ball in on four plays.

“They never stopped,” Spring Valley coach Marcus Teal said. “The defense played their tails off.”

Jordan Cox added two rushing touchdowns and a touchdown pass. Austyn Wallace also broke a long run for a touchdown. Brandon Lopez had a number of catches to keep the Grizzlies offense moving.

Spring Valley (4-4) closes the season with games against Pahrump Valley and Clark. If the Grizzlies win both, they are assured of taking the Southwest’s No. 4 seed in the playoffs.

“That was one of the things that we wanted from the beginning of the season, to control our own destiny,” Teal said. “We don’t want to leave it up to anyone else. We’ve got two games left for sure and we’ll have to be clicking pretty well to be successful.”
