The Nevada 3A State flag football championship game between Virgin Valley High and Del Sol Academy has been postponed for a second time in two days and will now be played on Monday, Feb. 25, at 4 p.m. at Cimarron-Memorial High School in North Las Vegas.
The title game was originally scheduled to be played on Thursday, Feb. 21, but was postponed along with all extra-curricular activities by the Clark County School District after a rare snowstorm hit the Las Vegas Valley Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
The game was pushed back a day to Friday, Feb. 22, but due to freezing temperatures in the valley overnight that caused icy road conditions and made travel by school buses dangerous, all CCSD schools had classes cancelled on Friday. All after-school activities for Friday were postponed and rescheduled for Monday.
“We were ready to play on Thursday,” VVHS head coach Joey Bowler said. “We’ll be ready to go on Monday. A couple more days of practice will be nice.”
The Lady Bulldogs (20-4 overall) reached their third consecutive title game appearance by defeating Boulder City, 13-2, in a semifinal contest on Tuesday, Feb. 19, at Evan Wilson Stadium.
Quarterback Ally Wright threw two touchdown passes in the win – 18 yards to Mira Larsen and 11 yards to Macee Bundy.
The Lady Bulldog defense held Boulder City to 85 yards rushing and 74 yards through the air. Alley Shaner and Kiara Swanson led the way with seven flag pulls apiece. They also recorded one sack each.
This will be the third meeting of the year against Del Sol Academy (19-4 overall) for Virgin Valley. The Lady Dragons won the previous two meetings – 13-0 in Las Vegas on Jan. 14 and 13-6 on Feb. 7 in Mesquite.
The Lady Bulldogs are hoping that the third time will be the charm.
