The best players in town

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.

Like a rocket launched off a platform, there was no stopping Cheyenne’s Myloe Lewis.

Lewis spent as much time in the end zone as he did in school Friday. He scored eight times as the Desert Shields broke away from Western for a 72-47 victory.

“He stole the show,” Cheyenne coach David Cochran said. “When he plays and does what he does, that’s all we’re looking for this season. We’ll do our jobs and let him exploit the defense.”

Lewis wound up with more than 300 yards and could have gone for more if Cochrane wouldn’t have pulled him after one possession in the third quarter. He scored 50 percent of the time he touched the ball.

Winless Western actually hung with Cheyenne for the majority of the first half, trailing only 16-13 early in the second quarter. Cochran could tell the Warriors had improved.

“I’m happy to see that program experience some success,” he said.
