Final push for the postseason

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer look across the Las Vegas valley at the playoff races still alive entering the last week of the regular season. Does Canyon Springs have a shot against Las Vegas? What about Foothill vs. Liberty? Listen in for discussion on these topics and more.

The Mojave High football team won at home for the first time in four seasons Thursday, beating Shadow Ridge 24-9 to close the season.

Bryant Lewis rushed for 337 yards and three touchdowns — 2, 6 and 46 yards — to help the Rattlers (2-7) finish the season with two wins. Last year, they didn’t win a game.

“For the seniors to go out on a winning note is great,” Mojave coach Joe Delgado said. “The junior have bought into what we are trying to sell them and we have some confidence (moving forward).”

Additionally, Mojave’s junior varsity and freshmen teams each beat Shadow Ridge — the first time in three years Mojave has swept all three levels, Delgado said. Last week, Mojave barely lost to playoff qualifier Cheyenne, 16-8, is closing the season with several positives.

“It’s just huge for morale,” the coach said.

D’adrian Green added an 8-yard touchdown run for Mojave.
