Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer glance back at last week's action, which included three of the best games of the year. Ensuing questions include debating the Sunrise Region's favorite, Bishop Gorman's vulnerability and Foothill's potential.
“He’s getting better every week,” Shadow Ridge coach Frank Tousa said. “This is the first year he is playing varsity football, and we knew there would be an adjustment period. He just needs to fine-tune some things."
Puia ran for 30 yards, which included touchdown runs of eight and nine yards. He also threw a pair of touchdowns, including a 59-yard strike to J Henderson.
While Puia was able to get the team into the end zone, running back Cody Alfar shouldered much of the rushing load.
He carried the ball 20 times for 151 yards.
“We would like to get (Cody into the end zone), but it just didn’t work out tonight,” Tousa said. “Cody has been our workhorse the last few weeks.”
Shadow Ridge improved to 3-3 (1-1 Sunset Northwest), while Sierra Vista dropped to 2-4 (1-1).
The Mustangs travel to Arbor View, while Sierra Vista hosts Palo Verde.
