Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer touch on every high school football team in the valley and more on this week's episode. The topics, rants and disagreements are at an all-time high, so brace your ears and get ready to take sides.
The victory improved the Patriots to 6-1 overall (3-0 conference). The win also sets up a critical matchup with Basic High (6-1, 3-0) next week in a game that will likely decide the Sunrise Southeast champion.
“They definitely present problems,” Liberty coach Rich Muraco said. “It’s sort of pick your poison (with Devonte Boyd and Antraye Johnson). … We’ll have to play a complete game. We can’t have mistakes as far as penalties. We’re going to have to rally to the ball (on defense.)”
The Patriots were without the services of star running back and UNLV commit Niko Kapeli, who suffered a foot injury last Friday against Del Sol.
Muraco expects Kapeli back for next week for the highly anticipated duel.
In Kapeli’s absence, Liberty went to running back by committee, using six backs.
Tyler Pavin led the way with two touchdowns.
Jaylen Mitchell caught four passes for 116 yards with two touchdowns. He also ran in a score.
Eldorado dropped to 1-6 and 0-3 in conference.
