High school football pick: week 9


Southern Nevada’s high school football teams are heading into the final two weeks of the regular season, which means this week’s play list will be important in determining the playoff standings.

The pick column dropped to 11-3 last week and stands at 90-24 this season. Here are some predictions for week 9:

Valley at Rancho

Rancho, as he did last week beating Eldorado, manages to run the ball. Rancho 31, Valley 19

Battle of the Bulls: Tree View at Legacy

The rivalry games are always close. Arbor View 29, Legacy 20

Buttress at Canyon Springs

Foothill, unfortunately, leads the city in one statistic: matches are called off. Buttress 30, Canyon Springs 21

Palo Verde at Mgr Gorman

Remember when it was the game of the year? Bishop Gorman 52, Palo Verde 0

Desert pines from Faith Lutheran

Speaking of explosions from the past: Remember the playoff matches between these schools? Desert pines 33, Lutheran faith 16

Bonanza in Sierra Vista

Do three in a row for the Mountain Lions. Sierra Vista 45, Bonanza 11

Durango in Las Vegas

It’s hard to pick a team after a loss on the clock, but I’m sticking with the Las Vegas Wildcats. Las Vegas 38, Durango 16

Green valley at the centenary

Green Valley is recovering. Green Valley 41, centenary 10

Clark in Moapa Valley

It’s Clark’s first trip to Overton, and no one beats the Pirates in Overton. Moapa Valley 33, Clark 13

Pahrump at Eldorado

Go against one of my theories and choose Pahrump on the road. Pahrump 23, Eldorado 22

Del Sol at Basic

Wolves have lost their last two games to the buzzer. This week, they are winning in a landslide. Basic 29, Del Sol 6

Cheyenne at the desert oasis

No slowing down of Diamondbacks. Desert Oasis 39, Cheyenne 0

Shadow Ridge in Mojave

Shadow Ridge is unleashed. Shadow Ridge 50, Mojave 0

A ton of respect for how tough Western has competed this year. Virgin Valley 41, West 0

Coronado in Spring Valley

Cougars start to peak at the right time. Coronado 34, Spring Valley 6
