    Discussing every team, every league

    Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer celebrate the return of football season with an hour-long podcast diving into anything and everything regarding local high schools. They also look back on the victories by Bishop Gorman and Moapa Valley in the Sollenberger Classic and finish with week one picks.

    Bishop Gorman High's Kline Fielden missed a 40-yard field goal with just seconds left Friday night, giving Florida's Armwood High a narrow 20-17 victory at Fertitta Field in a contest of top-10 national opponents.

    Earlier in the quarter, Gorman quarterback Anu Solomon capped a 10-play, 85-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown run to bring the Gaels within three points. Then, with about 2 minutes left, Solomon led a drive into Armwood territory to put Gorman within field goal range in the closing seconds. But Fielden missed the attempt, giving Gorman its first loss ever in the four-year history of Fertitta Field.

    Gorman trailed Armwood 20-10 seconds into the fourth quarter, cutting into its deficit with a 1-yard touchdown run from Shaquille Powell on the first play of the quarter.

    Armwood, which led 14-3 at halftime, went on a seven-minute drive to open the second half, converting twice on third down and increasing their lead to 20-3 on a Wade Edwards 4-yard touchdown run.

    Gorman surrendered 14 second-quarter points and trailed Armwood 14-3 at halftime, erasing a 3-0 first-quarter lead on a 27-yard field goal from Fielden.

    It was all Armwood in the second quarter with quarterback Darryl Richardson throwing a 66-yard touchdown early in the quarter on a third-down play for a 7-3 lead. Armwood added to the lead with a 12-yard scoring run from Edwards 18 seconds before halftime.

    Gorman isn't the lone local team in action tonight.

    The first week of high school football games feature several exciting contests — Arbor View at Liberty, Palo Verde at Canyon Springs and Cimarron-Memorial at Basic.

    The start of the Liberty-Arbor View game was delayed until 8 p.m. because of a problem with the Arbor View team bus.
