Separation week

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.

Richard Hernandez rushed for 180 yards and two touchdowns today for the Chaparral High football team, which scored 21 unanswered points in the second half for a 34-13 win at Sunrise Mountain.

The victory keeps the Cowboys alive for the final playoff berth in the Division I-A Sunrise. Chaparral trailed 13-12 at halftime, but made some adjustments in closing strong.

“We figured out what they were doing up front and how we could block it differently,” Chaparral coach Bill Froman said. “We were just flat early. They came out early thinking they should beat Sunrise, but Sunrise didn’t lay down.

Quarterback Jerome Williamson rushed for a touchdown and connected with Richard Nelson for a passing score. Bubba Dukes added a rushing touchdown.

“Wow, does he throw a good ball,” Froman said of Williamson. “We just need to develop some receivers.”
