Upset over the outlandish scores posted around the valley last week, Las Vegas Sun sports reporter Ray Brewer loses his sanity on this week's podcast. Co-host Case Keefer tries to stay out of the way during his rant on defense, but has plenty to add on other topics — including impressive games from Arbor View and Bishop Gorman, "the hut drill" and the two highly-anticipated games in Henderson on Friday.
The Eagles were the team who came out a field goal ahead Friday night, as Chris Nilsen booted a 20-yarder as time expired for the 15-12 victory.
“It’s always been tough up here,” Boulder City coach Alex Kazel said. “Virgin Valley was all fired up for their homecoming in the first half, and we couldn’t match that for some reason.”
After Virgin Valley’s second score, Boulder City running back Xavier Steel broke free for a 74-yard touchdown run.
Steel finished with 109 yards on 12 carries. D.J. Koopman had 12 carries for 84 yards.
Shortly after Steel’s touchdown, Joe Miller found Cole Reynolds for a 74-yard touchdown pass. With two failed conversions, Boulder City knew it would need to position itself for some late-game heroics.
Nilsen made sure a late drive didn’t go to waste with his game-winning field goal.
