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.

Make Moapa Valley’s tally 224-32 after Friday night.

That’s the combined score of the Pirates' four games against Nevada opponents after they throttled Western 59-6. Moapa Valley rushed for more than 400 yards in the victory.

Sean McConnell touched the ball three times and picked up 121 yards. Conner Mortensen joined the century club with 121 yards on 10 carries. Kasen Hughes racked up 108 yards on four carries.

It was 46-6 at halftime.

“It’s hard when you’re laying into your kids at halftime and their eyes are like, ‘what are you talking about coach,’” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “We’ve got some things to focus on. Penalties have been a major issue for us. We’ve got to try to correct that.

“I think we scored three times on the same drive tonight and they called back for holding or something like that. If we’re going to be a good team, we’ve got to make sure we don’t make those mistakes,” he said.
