Welcome to the postseason

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer transition into playoff mode and go over all of Friday's matchups.

Jaren Campbell rushed for 170 yards and three touchdowns today for the Palo Verde High football team, leading them to a 42-12 victory against visiting Cimarron-Memorial in the Sunset Regional quarterfinals.

“He’s run hard for us all year,” Palo Verde coach Darwin Rost said.

Palo Verde held a slim one-point lead late in the second quarter when Logan Hutchison hooked up with Isaac Woods for a 9-yard touchdown on the last play of the half for a 13-6 halftime lead.

Campbell had all three of his touchdown runs in the second half, and Ty Fuller added a 42-yard touchdown run.

In the first half, Aaron Chisholm opened the scoring on a 92-yard touchdown run. Palo Verde advances to next week’s Sunset semifinals to face top-seeded Arbor View.

“It’s two physical teams going at each other,” Rost said.
