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.

Las Vegas coach James Thurman knew whom to credit for his team’s convincing 59-14 victory over Valley.

“Offensive line did a good job,” he said. “ It was an impressive showing, and those guys never get any credit.”

Andrew Moreland rushed for 83 yards with three touchdowns, while Elias Miller, Trevor Swenson and Josh Perez also scored on the ground.

The line also bought time for Trevor Swenson, who completed six passes for 129 yards, including a 56-yard bomb to Sam Blackburn.

Things don’t get any easier for the Wildcats (5-3, 3-1 Sunrise Northeast), as they play Canyon Springs next Friday.

“You’ve always got your work cut out for you against them,” Thurman said. “It’s been a dogfight, and the league is getting better, obviously.”

Valley dropped to 1-7 and 0-4 in division play.
