Big games in Henderson this week

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are back for another high school football discussion. They look at all the matchups this week and spend extra time on the Southeast, which begins league play this week.

Kevion Glenn’s touchdown pass to Ladarrell Mongkholtham with about a minute to play Thursday gave the visiting the Canyon Springs High football team an 18-16 victory against Desert Pines in the Northeast Division opener for both schools.

Canyon Springs received the ball inside the Desert Pines 30-yard line with about three minutes remaining after a risky fake-punt attempt failed for Desert Pines.

But Canyon Springs couldn’t move the ball, setting up a fourth down play with a little more than a minute left. That’s when the Pioneers spread the field offensively, allowing for Mongkholtham to be wide open in the middle of the field. Glenn threw a perfect strike for the game-winning points.

DJ Pumphrey added a pair of short touchdown runs for Canyon Springs (1-2, 1-0 Northeast), which won the first time this season. Pumphrey, who in his last game had four touchdowns against Foothill, unofficially had more than 200 total yards in the win.

Desert Pines (0-3, 0-1) got two touchdown runs from Leon Hayes, including the first less than a minute into the game.
