Is the short week unfair for playoff teams?

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer are pumped up for all the high-stakes games going down Thursday night. But why can't they be played on Friday?

That 2-0 start to the season seemed like a long time ago Thursday night, but Spring Valley banded together to pull out one more victory for its seniors, 14-10 at Sierra Vista.

“I told them, ‘We fell short of your goals but you’re going to come back and be proud of our program,’ ” Spring Valley coach Marcus Teal said.

Spring Valley took a 14-7 lead in the second half on quarterback Brant Berglund’s second touchdown pass and the defense held Sierra Vista to a field goal despite being backed up in its own territory on one drive. After trading some unsuccessful drives in the fourth quarter, Spring Valley go the ball with less than four minutes left and picked up a couple of first downs to end the game and the season.

Spring Valley finished 3-6 while Sierra Vista was 1-8.
