Las Vegas Sun sports reporters discuss "GPS Friday", when they headed out to North Las Vegas to get a handle on a few non-Henderson, non-Gorman teams. Who's better: Palo Verde or Arbor View?

He saw Coronado’s offense perform its best when it got onto the field in short intervals and was able to establish a pace.
“Rhythm is Coronado’s thing,” Barnson explained. “And if you’re off the field, you can’t get into a rhythm. So that was our approach.”
The Aggies won in their usual fashion, sustaining long drives with smashmouth football. The atypical part was the score in a game between two local powers, as Arbor View shut out Coronado 42-0.
“We were physical up front,” Barnson said. “Our kids just went after them right out of the gates.”
Arbor View had 334 rushing yards. Herman Gray got the bulk of the work, gaining 109 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Jacob Speaks contributed to the action with 104 yards, including both a rushing and receiving touchdown.
Andrew Cornwell had 78 passing yards and a touchdown.
Arbor View didn’t punt until midway through the fourth quarter and held Coronado out of its own territory for more than a half. For Coronado, Jansen Pollins had 53 rushing yards.
