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 Diamondbacks led 33-6 late in the third quarter before the Mountain Lions mounted a comeback that was too little, too late.
“They never quit,” Desert Oasis coach Scott Staudinger said of Sierra Vista. “They are a feisty team. They scored and got an onside kick late. Thankfully, we recovered the last onside kick.”
Kurtis Brooks rushed for three first-half touchdowns to put Desert Oasis in control. The senior rushed for more than 250 yards in the Diamondbacks' first win of the season.
Devin Fortenberry was the other force that moved the offense, as he both caught and ran for a touchdown. All of the Mountain Lions' scores came through the air, but the Diamondbacks were able to run off the clock after grabbing the final onside kick attempt.
“The effort was really good, they played hard for three quarters,” Staudinger said. “We just had trouble finishing out. We need to get better at that, but I’m happy with the effort.”
