Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer break down the first week of high school football games and look ahead to this Friday's gridiron action.
That was the first and last highlight of the night for Moapa Valley. The touchdown tied the game at 7 before Hurricane scored 35 unanswered points to win 42-7.
“Hurricane is the best team we will see all year,” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “They execute real well and are just so aggressive defensively that they make it tough.”
It was a familiar refrain for the Pirates. Moapa Valley plays the Tigers every year and has never beaten them during Lewis’ tenure.
Next week, Moapa Valley travels to Kanab, a team that Virgin Valley beat 16-0 to open the season. Lewis said that game would be more evenly matched for the 0-2 Pirates.
“Our kids are just so inexperienced that we couldn’t keep up with Hurricane at this point,” Lewis said.
