Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer go over the high school football postseason picture and reflect on how it got to this point. The episode also contains a lengthy segment debating who is the Southeast Division MVP — Niko Kapeli, Kyle Keplinger, Aaron Love or Chris Marshall.
The two-time defending state champion Bishop Gorman High football team closed the second quarter Friday with three touchdowns in a two-and-a-half minute stretch in a 49-6 victory against visiting Cheyenne in the Sunset Regional semifinals.
Gorman’s high-powered offense was limited to just seven points in the first quarter before hitting its stride late in the half.
“We had a rough first quarter,” Gorman coach Tony Sanchez said. “We didn’t look good offensively. We had to settle down.”
Senior running back Shaquille Powell led the Gorman offense with three touchdowns, rushing for 150 yards and two scores and catching another touchdown.
While the offense sputtered early, the Gorman defense was solid all night in limiting Cheyenne attack. Gorman led 49-0 before Cheyenne scored a late touchdown against the Gaels’ reserves.
Gorman, which is the No. 1 seed from the Southwest for the eight-team regional, will host Northwest No. 2 Arbor View next week. Gorman on Oct. 21 beat Arbor View 56-7.
