Dominance of Moapa and Gorman; who's No. 2: Liberty or Arbor View?

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer compare the run Moapa Valley is on in the Division 1-A to the one Bishop Gorman has put together this season in the upper decision. Other familiar arguments arise, including a debate on whether Arbor View should be considered as the second-best team in the state. Give us your thoughts in the comments.

Boulder City ’s rushing attack faced little resistance against Sunrise Mountain on Friday, rushing for 511 yards and seven touchdowns in a 55-6 rout.

D.J. Koopman led the way with 185 yards on 13 carries with a pair of scores. He also threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to help Boulder City improve to 3-1 in the Division 1A Sunrise Conference (7-1 overall).

“We’re getting better each week,” Boulder City coach Alex Kazel said. “We were shorthanded. We had a few kids out for a variety of reasons. We had a few kids step up and play big in their place. That will make us better for the next week.”

Corbett Fleming and Sam Woodbury also had strong performances. Fleming needed only five carries for 139 yards with a score, while Woodbury ran for 123 yards and four touchdowns.

“Corbett and Sam didn’t have a lot of carries, but when they did, they ran with it,” Kazel said.

Sunrise Mountain fell to 1-7 overall and 0-4 in conference.
