The tough Southeast Division

Las Vegas Sun reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer break down high school football's tough Southeast Division. Five of the league's seven teams are part of the Sun's top-10 rankings.

The Cimarron-Memorial High football team scored two touchdowns in the final four minutes of the first half Saturday in a 37-8 victory against host Cheyenne.

Cimarron trailed 8-0 after surrendering a nine-minute scoring drive but posted 37 unanswered points to close the game.

“I thought we could bounce back and win, but I didn’t expect to be able to win the game like that,” Cimarron coach Rod Vollan said.

Brandon Robinson started the scoring for Cimarron (1-1) with a 26-yard interception return for a touchdown. Christian Brown, who rushed for 105 yards on 14 carries, closed the first half with a 2-yard touchdown run.

Gerard Martinez completed 4 of 7 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for a score.

Cimarron held Cheyenne to 170 yards of offense.
