Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer preview the two biggest games of the week, Desert Pines at Moapa Valley and Green Valley at Canyon Springs. Keefer also takes amusement at Brewer's yearning for the old days before spread offenses overtook the football landscape.

The Bishop Gorman High football team only ran 31 offensive plays today, but still beat Bonanza 79-0 in a Southwest League game.

Bonanza elected not to punt most of the game, regardless of the distance needed for a first down, to give Gorman the ball with a short field to score.

Russell Booze had a pair of touchdown runs for Gorman, Daniel Stewart scored on a screen pass and Alize Jones caught a touchdown.

Nicco Fertitta blocked a field-goal attempt for Gorman, which was returned by Dylan Weldon about 60 yards for a touchdown.

Others to score for Gorman include: Jonathan Shumaker, Edward Bogdanowicz and Jaylen Carrol.
