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.
Silverado has become known for its offensive precision in the last few years, but it was the defense that shined in its first victory of the season.
“We held them in check all night,” Silverado coach Andy Ostolaza said.
Scamorza also had an interception. The intensity, however, took its toll, and Ostolaza said the whole team was noticeably tired before the end of the game.
“We got a little gassed,” Ostolaza said. “I was born and raised here my whole life, and it’s just something you get used to the first couple of weeks. Guys nerves get up and they start to sweat a lot.”
Moniz also effectively led the Silverado offense through the air while he was in the game.
“That’s one thing we’ve got — some pretty good depth with our skill positions,” Ostolaza said. “We’ve got some guys who can come in and get the job done.”
Junior running back Izaiah Thurmon rushed for two touchdowns and more than 100 yards.
