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 scenario was simple: The winner plays next Friday against Faith Lutheran in the state playoffs, while the loser saw its season come to a disappointing end.
Boulder City extended its season Thursday, grinding out a 14-8 victory over Chaparral.
“We earned another game,” Boulder City coach Alex Kazel said. “From here on out, if you don’t get it done, you turn in your gear (the following Monday). They didn’t make any mistakes, and we held our own and didn’t give away the game.”
Boulder City (4-5, 2-3 Division I-A Sunrise) is scheduled to travel to Faith Lutheran for the opening round of the Division I-A state playoffs.
The teams met earlier this season with Faith Lutheran picking up a 31-19 victory.
“We are now an experienced team that is confident,” Kazel said. “We can’t make the same mistakes. They’re a good football team and they’ll capitalize on them. Hopefully the experience will allow us to play a cleaner game.”
Quarterback Trenton Carmell broke an 8-8 tie with a 1-yard touchdown run that became the game-winner.
Chaparral finishes its season 3-6 (1-4).
