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.

There are many distractions involved with homecoming week. Arbor View didn’t let that get in the way, dispatching Spring Valley 44-0 at home tonight.

“It’s a busy week for the kids,” Arbor View coach Dan Barnson said. “All in all we played well.”

Arbor View senior Devon Turner rushed for 101 yards and three touchdowns on six carries while fellow senior Anthony Smith scored twice with 78 yards on 12 carries. Arbor View threw for 60 yards while its defense held Spring Valley to 66 total yards.

The bonus of such a lopsided victory is that Barnson was able to empty his bench.

“It’s homecoming,” he said, “we want every kid to play.”

Next week Arbor View hits the road at Durango High, which has been struggling this season. No matter. Barnson said the opponent won’t change things for his team as it attempts to move to 2-0 in league play.

“We have a routine for what we do week in and week out,” Barnson said. “Our kids will have their fun this weekend and then go out Monday and study film. It doesn’t matter who we play.”
