Thoughts on realignment, Centennial's challenge and Green Valley's latest romp

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.

For the first time in school history, Mojave will host a home playoff game.

The Rattlers put the finishing touches on a memorable regular season Friday, blowing out Pahrump Valley 47-6. Mojave will play Desert Pines, a team it beat 29-18 in the second week of the season, in the first round of the Division 1A postseason next week.

“We do not want to go one-and-done,” Mojave coach Joe Delgado said, “so we expect a lot more hard work this upcoming week.”

The Rattlers can enter the week of preparation with extra confidence after the latest beatdown they administered. Sophomore quarterback Zack Arave led the way with 234 total yards and two touchdowns, one passing and one rushing.

Ty Flanagan, Billy Murphy, Marcus Hines, Deandre Armstrong and Marcus Parker each also scored for Mojave. Junior Lorenzo Guerrero may have put together the best game, though.

Guerrero blocked a punt, recovered a fumble and notched three sacks.

“We started the game off slow, but came out in the second half knowing that we had to put in the work with the playoffs next week and we did just that,” Delgado said.
