(NDOW) Anglers continue to find shad from Vegas Wash to Government Wash and a few striper boils to go with them. Weekend winds made fishing difficult, though some anglers managed to boat a few fish.
Do you think we can win this game against Lowry? How about that Billingsley kid? Can he be stopped?
Those questions were on everyone’s mind in the week leading up to Saturday’s semi-final game. After the close shave with the Bulldogs the week before, there were questions, concerns and a lot of worrying. And as word got out that Moapa starting quarterback Dakota Watters was hurt with a contusion in his leg, and would not play this week, even more apprehensions filled the minds of Pirate fans.
The Green Wave of Fallon travelled to Truckee and nearly beat the Wolverines on the final play of the game.
From the 11 yard line Fallon’s Frank de Braga had the game winning touchdown brush through his fingers and fall incomplete sending Fallon home and the Truckee faithful into celebration mode.
Much like the Moapa /Virgin Valley game two weeks ago, the final four minutes of the game saw three touchdowns scored. The first was a 50 yard intercepted pass taken back for a score by Fallon. The point after gave the Green Wave a 24-21 lead.
The girls soccer season came to an amazing close earlier this month. Despite an early season coaching change, the lady Pirates finished in second place and advanced to the Division finals for the first time in team history. They finished the season with a 4-2 league record.
The rising water at Lake Mead, particularly the water in the Overton Arm, near marker # 18, has really improved the fishing for Striper this fall. The abundant shad that provide the bulk of the food for Striped Bass, seem to have come back this year, more than I can remember in years past.
(NDOW) Vegas Wash and the surrounding area continues to produce striped bass and some good top-water action. The fish generally aren’t big by striper standards but cook well nonetheless.
How long does it take to win a football game? For Moapa Valley it took exactly three minutes.
Another chapter was written on Saturday afternoon when the Pirates and Bulldogs butted heads again for the second time in a month. This time it was the division playoffs and Moapa narrowly won it 13-12.
This week only four football games were played in the Nevada 3A. All of them were elimination games as the first round and state quarter finals began.
In Lowry, the Buckaroos were coming off a two game losing streak: the first to Truckee; and the second to, perhaps the hottest team in the 3A, Fallon.
BOULDER CITY — A mere seven points spread over three heart-stopping games in the Boulder City High School gym last Friday is all that prevented the Moapa Valley High School Lady Pirates varsity volleyball team from going to state finals this year.
Members of the Moapa Valley High School cross country team experienced joy, pain, and a lot of fun this weekend as they competed at the State Championship meet in Reno, Nevada. Moapa had qualified three runners for the State meet; Dejaneara Carter, Kenna McMurray and Skyler Whipple.
