Palo Verde, Arbor View renew rivalry

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Case Keefer and Ray Brewer recap the action from the first week of high school football and look ahead to another slate of games. Popular topics include this week's Arbor View vs. Palo Verde showdown and last week's stunning upset by Bonanza over Silverado.

Gerard Martinez passed for a pair of first-half touchdowns Friday to lead the Cimarron-Memorial football team to a 28-7 victory against Mojave in the Northwest Division opener for both schools.

Martinez connected with Daniel Stewart for a 14-yard scoring strike and Anthony Turner for a 12-yard touchdown. Cimarron was equally proficient running the ball, with Taz Taoipu scoring on runs of 2 and 1 yards and Demaryae Williams rushing 18 times for 137 yards.

Cimarron (2-0, 1-0 Northwest) was flawless defensively in allowing about 140 yards and no touchdowns. The lone Mojave touchdown came in special teams on a kickoff return — the second straight week Cimarron has surrendered a touchdown in the return game.

“We have some issues we still need to fix,” Cimarron coach John Parcells said. “We didn’t do much in the second half. We are playing below our expectations and ability level.”

Demarlo Lewis was the defensive standout, returning an interception 45 yards to help keep the Mojave (0-1) offense in check.

Bryant Lewis returned a kickoff 90 yards for touchdown to score Mojave’s lone points.
