A week after Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer could barely find a single game to disagree on, they line up on opposite sides all over the place. With all teams now in league play, they go through all the matchups and differ on how several will play out. They also look back on last week's game between Bishop Gorman and Booker T. Washington.
The Battle for Boulder Highway has never featured an ending like this.
The schools are located two miles apart and separated by Boulder Highway. When Foothill opened in 1999, it took most of its initial students from Basic in creating a natural rivalry.
Drew Doxtator passed for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns for Foothill (4-2, 2-0). Ian Ellis had 10 catches for nearly 200 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons, which led 27-18 early in the fourth quarter before Basic mounted its comeback.
Antraye Johnson’s 60-yard scoring strike to Jon Scoffield trimmed the Basic deficit to three points with 10 minutes remaining. Johnson booted a 28-yard field goal with about four minutes left to even the game at 27.
Johnson, like he has been all season, was nearly impossible to stop. He accounted for more than 400 yards of offense, racing for a 70-yard touchdown run on the opening play of the third quarter to give Basic an 18-14 advantage. Johnson made several would-be tacklers miss and appeared to be stopped multiple times while racing across field.
Scoffield had two total touchdowns — one receiving and one rushing. Bobby Merritt had a touchdown run for Foothill.
