Back from Arizona, a heartbroken Ray Brewer recounts the costly mistakes that made Nevada teams go 0-2 in this year's Sollenberger Classic. Fellow Las Vegas Sun sports reporter Case Keefer helps him cope by looking at this week's national showdown between Bishop Gorman and Maryland's Our Lady Of Good Counsel. The two also babble semi-coherently on the rest of the week's games and high school football players' favorite rappers. Don't forget to subscribe to Prep Sports Now on Itunes.

Jared Repp deserves a good night’s rest after Friday.

The Moapa Valley junior did more in a single game against Pahrump Valley than some players will do for half of the season. Repp rushed for 109 yards and recorded 12 tackles to lead the Pirates to a 45-7 win over the Trojans to even their record at 1-1.

His twin brother, Jake Repp, also had a big night, returning an interception for a touchdown.

“I would describe it as very businesslike from our kids,” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “We were determined to get our first win and bounce back from the Blue Ridge game. We shored up a lot of mistakes.”

Moapa Valley had at least three other touchdowns called back because of penalties. It wasn’t like the Pirates needed them.

They jumped out to an early lead behind Conner Mortensen, who finished with 229 yards and four touchdowns on 15 rushing attempts. A rotation of quarterbacks combined to go 5 for 9 for 104 yards and one interception.

“We treated this like a must-win and pushed that throughout the week,” Lewis said. “We learned what we needed to do and made some strides.
