Tornadoes and tirades

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer open this week's show by discussing the top-ranked high school football team in the nation, Florida's Booker T. Washington, coming to town Friday to take on Bishop Gorman. They then work their way into other pertinent topics, highlighted by a discussion of the definition of "athlete" and whether Green Valley can match Canyon Springs' "quickness".

Southern Nevada’s fierce fall winds have ruined plenty of game plans over the years.

Luckily Division 1-A powerhouse Moapa Valley always has contingency plans. The Pirates battled less-than-ideal conditions at Chaparral to win 38-6 Friday night.

“We would have liked better weather but we dealt with it,” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “We ran the ball and had a good defensive effort.”

The Cowboys gained less than 100 yards and their only score came after a first-half punt block that saw them get the ball at the 10-yard line.

While Moapa Valley gained most of its yardage on the ground, quarterback Zach Hymas tossed four touchdowns. Jared Repp had 88 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

The highlight of the game came when Kaleb Bodily ripped the ball away from a Chaparral ball carrier and returned it 60 yards for a touchdown.
