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 game-winning scoring drive started with 2 minutes, 19 seconds remaining and Las Vegas (5-2 overall, 2-1 Northeast League) trailing by four points.
“The kids believed,” Las Vegas coach James Thurman said. “They never shut down. They believed in themselves and believed in the program. We are happy about that.”
Swenson completed 20-of-27 passes for about 250 yards and three touchdowns, helping Las Vegas rebound after being blown out last week against league-leading Green Valley.
“Any win is a good win right now,” Thurman said.
The game went back-and-forth all night with multiple lead changes, including Silverado’s Alex Cater rushing for more than 300 yards and five touchdowns.
