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.
Boulder City scored the first touchdown and was in good position until Moapa Valley ended the first half with a 66-yard touchdown pass. That strike, said Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis, was key.
“That seemed to really help us,” Lewis said. “It gave us a lot of momentum going into the second half.”
Moapa Valley dominated in the second half. Junior Kaleb Bodily rushed for 144 yards and two touchdowns on nine carries and Jared Repp scored once with 117 yards on 15 carries.
Overall Moapa Valley’s offense amassed 291 rushing yards and 212 passing yards. That type of balance could be crucial next week when Moapa Valley plays rival Virgin Valley.
“Of course this is a rivalry game,” Lewis said. “This will be billed as one of the biggest games of the year.”
That may be true, but in order to come out on top Lewis said he’ll try to treat it the same as he did tonight’s victory.
“Our preparation won’t change at all,” Lewis said. “We’re focused on the good things Virgin does and we’ll try to make them do other things.”
