Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer talk Liberty's statement victory, Bishop Gorman's error-filled night and Centennial's time to shine against Arbor View. In the middle of the usual discussion, they break into an argument over which player is having the best season so far — D.J. Pumphrey or Niko Kapeli.
Maybe all the Falcons needed was a home game.
“We feel like we’re getting better,” Foothill coach Marty Redmond said. “We played well in certain areas in week one, then played really poor in week two. We did much better tonight.”
Senior Rickey Dixon had a breakout game as the 5-foot-9, 165-pound star who lines up at multiple positions scored four touchdowns. Two of them were on screen passes.
Junior quarterback Drew Doxtator had his best game of the year so far with five touchdown passes.
Redmond was most pleased with the defensive effort. Desert Oasis’ 31 points were misleading as it returned a kickoff for a touchdown and scored after Foothill fumbled the ball at the 2-yard line.
“I don’t think we had any standouts because the whole defense played great football,” Redmond said. “The defense was much improved.”
