Strong rushing attack leads Arbor View to win in Battle of the Bulls game

Palo vs. Liberty and Gorman's national test headline busy week

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer bring all the ranting and raving any Southern Nevada high school football fan could ever want on the fourth episode of this year's podcast. Brewer further fuels his detractors at Centennial and predicts a lopsided victory in favor of Bishop Gorman. Does Keefer agree? Listen to find out.

The Arbor View High football team didn’t complete a pass Friday night.

Rather, the Aggies did all of their damage on the ground in rushing for 463 yards on 46 carries in a 42-28 victory against host Legacy in the Battle of the Bulls game.

Jimmie Finister had nine carries for 107 yards and two touchdowns, sophomore Herman Grey had seven carries for 94 yards and a touchdown, and Larry Norman added six carries for 44 yards and a score.

In total, Arbor View had six rushers gain at least 40 yards. Five of them scored.

“We are still searching (for a feature back). We are still looking for someone who totally wants it,” Arbor View coach Dan Barnson said.

Arbor View jumped out to a 14-0 lead, but Legacy rallied to even the game at 14-all by halftime. Last week, Arbor View was blanked in the second half against Green Valley after building a four touchdown lead.

“Our kids were just like last week,” Barnson said. “We are fighting with the kids getting complacent.”

Jacobs Speaks added six carries for 42 yards and a touchdown, and quarterback Rasheem Parks scored on a quarterback keep.

Next week, Arbor View plays Centennial in a battle of two of the area’s top-five teams.

“Centennial is on fire. We’ll have our hands full,” Barnson said.
