Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer engage in a wide-ranging high school football conversation. In addition to their usual recap and upcoming picks, they discuss the area's best kickers.
Centennial, which reached the Sunset Regional semifinals last year, opened with defeats against Las Vegas, Arbor View and Palo Verde — three of the Southern Nevada’s top five teams. Shadow Ridge, on the other hand, has first-year starters at several positions and is still searching for its first win.
Even though Centennial was victorious, coach Leon Evans wasn’t happy with their efforts in the second half. The Bulldogs simply went through the motions — similar to the loss to Las Vegas, when Centennial couldn’t hold a double-digit second half advantage.
“We still didn’t play four quarters,” Evans said. “We still aren’t finishing out games. Our biggest thing is playing a full four quarters. We are satisfied because we didn’t come to play in the second half.”
