Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer talk about Liberty's momentous victory over nationally ranked Mililani High last week, while also glancing around the rest of the high school football landscape.
Centennial took a 24-21 lead with four seconds remaining in regulation on a 30-yard field goal from junior Michael Neubeck. But when his teammates stormed the field to celebrate, assuming the successful field goal ended the game, they were flagged for excessive celebration and docked a 15-yard penalty on the ensuing kickoff.
After Neubeck’s kick hit a Palo Verde player near midfield, the Panthers jumped on the ball with two seconds to play — enough time for a desperation heave into the endzone. On that play, Centennial was whistled for a facemask penalty to set up Palo Verde kicker Aaron Mack for a 47-yard attempt to tie the game. His kick hit off the upright and through for three points, and overtime.
After Hennis scored to put Centennial ahead, the Bulldogs defense kept Palo Verde out of the endzone to improve to 3-0 on the season.
Evans had a 50-yard touchdown run and a long touchdown pass to Savon Scarver in the first half. In the second half, Rhamondre Stevenson, who rushed for more than 100 yards, added a touchdown.
