Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer take a look around the Las Vegas high school football scene. They give their picks for the upcoming week and discuss the merits of eating orange wedges on long gameday road trips.

Centennial won a key Northwest Division battle against Cimarron-Memorial Thursday night.

The Bulldogs held on in the fourth quarter for a 23-21 victory over the Spartans. Cimarron scored a few times late to make it a close contest, but a 20-yard touchdown pass from Austin Turley to Trajan Pili provided enough insurance for Centennial.

“It was a defensive battle all night,” Centennial coach Leon Evans said. “It came down to who was going to make the last play. Fortunately, we had the ball last and we made the last play.”

Jacobi Owens had more than 180 yards and a touchdown for Centennial. Turley finished with 128 passing yards.

Despite an 0-3 start, Centennial is now right in the middle of the playoff hunt after going on a three-game winning streak.

“Tonight was the first time that we played all the way through,” Evans said. “We’d play a half, we’d play a quarter or two, but tonight we played all four quarters. That was huge for us.”
