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 Trailblazers' first-team defense shut out the Mountain Lions. One of their two star running backs, Marcus Williams, flirted with 300 yards on less than 15 carries. The other, Arie McQuaig, scored two touchdowns.
So, yes, Durango coach Matt Gerber was plenty proud of how his team played Friday night.
“I’m real happy with how we did offensively,” Gerber said. “We jumped on them pretty quick. And even though 27 points doesn’t sound like a good defensive night, our starters played great. They didn’t do a whole lot offensively.”
Gerber credited the defensive line for setting the tone for the rest of the team.
“We got a lot of pressure on their quarterback,” he said. “He’s a kid who can get out and run, and we didn’t let him do much of anything.”
Kameron Gillis and Anthony Collins each had interceptions in the game that showed the Trailblazers at their finest.
