Late touchdown run helps Cheyenne avoid upset bid by Mojave

Should Arbor View have accepted game with Gorman?

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are back with their weekly high school football podcast. This week's episode plays more like a variety show, as the two touch on a number of issues related to last week's gridiron action.

Tyler Spight’s short touchdown run with less than one minute remaining Friday gave the Cheyenne High football team a 16-8 victory against visiting Mojave.

Spight scored both of the Desert Shields’ touchdowns, also reaching the end zone in the first quarter to help Cheyenne qualify for next month’s playoffs.

Despite entering with just one win — against 3A classification Boulder City — Mojave gave Cheyenne (6-2 overall) a stiff challenge.

“If you allow a team you are supposed to beat on paper hang round, it will turn into a fight,” Cheyenne assistant coach Anthony Norris said. “For the most part, Mojave played a good football game.”

Cheyenne plays Centennial next week with the winner earned the No. 3 playoff seed from the Northwest.
