The first week of the prep football season was considered a success. But eight games were canceled by causes related to the COVID pandemic, player eligibility and wildfires.
With Nicholas Morrow and Javin White out for extended periods with injuries, Raiders linebackers Tanner Muse and Divine Deablo also have chances to earn more playing time.
The Golden Knights’ roster underwent a significant shake-up this offseason, with Marc-Andre Fleury, the face of the franchise, and fan favorite Ryan Reaves being traded.
Injuries have thinned the Raiders’ depth at linebacker, and veteran K.J. Wright is still available on the free agent market, but his asking price might be too much.
Junior Luis Flores could be the next Beatty Hornet quarterback. He has played with senior quarterback Jake Zamora in three sports. Flores and Zamora have known each other since the second grade. Each knows how the other plays the game. Flores said the two compete against each other and make themselves even better, so when Zamora was out with a bad ankle against Pahranagat Valley, Flores had no problem stepping in for him.
It was a great weekend for Lady Muckers’ volleyball, as both junior varsity and varsity were able to defeat their opponents. The girls won their league game against Round Mountain away and also an additional friendly game against Sierra Lutheran at home.
The Pahrump Fall Festival Rodeo was a success. Rodeo fans packed McCullough Arena, according to event volunteer “Cowboy” Ken Pyle.
The rodeo is in town for two days of the Pahrump Fall Festival, Friday and Saturday. The Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Professional Rodeo Association is the same rodeo as last year.
Volleyball is all about playing as hard as you can, taking your lickings and moving on to the next opponent. This is especially true when the perennial champions, the Pahranagat Valley Panthers come roaring in to Beatty.
The biggest weekend of the year is here and as the town readies itself for the Pahrump Fall Festival, the Pahrump Valley Speedway prepares for the biggest race of the year.
If you want to see great art, you go to the Louvre in Paris, but if you want to see great soccer, Pahrump is the town for you. The Lady Trojans posted their sixth win of the season beating the Mojave Rattlers 12-0 and improved to 6-0-1 on the year and 3-0 in league.
The Lady Trojans played three straight days of volleyball in a row.
The Sandy Valley Sidewinders aren’t the roll-over team from last year and gave the Muckers a run for their money. The Sidewinders volleyball team visited Tonopah last week on Friday and were 2-0 going into the meet with some major improvements offensively since last year. They easily beat Beaver Dam 3-0 and then beat Adelson school, 3-0, too.
The Tonopah Muckers won their first league game beating the Sandy Valley Sidewinders 26-22 at home on Friday. Matt Misener had a late touchdown, and scored on a 14-yard run with 15 seconds left before the end of the game.
The Beatty Hornets faced the always powerful Pahranagat Valley Panthers at home and lost 58-14.
