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? Is Centennial still a cinch for the playoffs despite a rough start? Listen for a conversation on those topics as well as many more.

Scoring on four of its first six offensive plays, Moapa Valley never gave visiting Pahrump Valley a chance Friday night.

The Pirates lit up the Trojans, 42-0.

“They tried to play ball control by holding it for six minutes and getting a first down or two so it was a slow game,” Moapa Valley coach Brent Lewis said. “But when we had the ball, we were efficient.”

Glancing over the statistics through four games, all wins, Lewis was taken aback by how much balance the Pirates have shown on offense. Their pass and rush production is nearly a 50-50 split.

It was the passing game that shined against the Trojans, though. Junior quarterback Zach Hymas went 13-for-17 for 233 yards and four touchdowns.

“He was a little jittery and nervous in the first game,” Lewis said, “but he’s gotten a lot better in every one since. He’s really seeing the field and making the reads.”

Jared Repp broke the 100-yard rushing barrier and had two touchdowns for Moapa Valley.
