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.

Jacob Pope returned two interceptions for touchdowns as Bonanza found its first victory of the season against rival Spring Valley Friday night.

The Bengals ran away in the traditionally close game with a 47-6 victory.

“We came out in the second half and just caught fire,” Bonanza coach Chad Dobar said. “Our defense really stepped up.”

Spring Valley scored on its first possession and provided much resistance to Bonanza in the first half. The Bengals went into halftime with only a 7-6 lead.

But they exploded for 23 points in the third quarter capped by two touchdowns from running back Cameron Wong.

Jeff Dore and Brett Doyle also scored, while kicker Austin Rowe showed off his leg by going 2-for-3 on field goals. Rowe made a 31- and 37-yarder.

“I don’t believe they had a drive for more than 20 yards after their first one,” Dobar said. “It was a team effort and we played with a real physical style. It was my kind of football.”
