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.

With just one loss on the season, the Bonanza High football team is still in contention to win its league next week in the regular season finale.

That, however, might be a tall task considering the Bengals (7-1 overall) are in the same league as two-time defending state champion Bishop Gorman, the nation’s No. 5 ranked team.

Bonanza led by 21 points at halftime Friday against Spring Valley, receiving a pair of rushing touchdowns from Jayveon Taylor and Carlos Soto in a 38-14 victory in yet another solid performance.

Next week, Bonanza plays Gorman for a share of the Southwest title. While considered a longshot, a Bonanza victory would force a three-way tie between the Bengals, Gorman and Desert Oasis.

“It’s crunch time right now,” Bonanza coach Shawn Dupris said. “It’s time to step up. We learned some things tonight (about our team) in preparation.”

Quarterback Brett Doyle added a rushing touchdown for Bonanza and kicker Austin Rowe connected on a 36-yard field.
