It’s never too early to think playoffs in Nevada football

The Sunrise Region still has one week to go, and in the case of the Southeast League, still a lot of maneuvering that can be done for the postseason.
But everything else in Southern Nevada’s football postseason picture has come into focus.
Check back on on Friday night for a breakdown of the Sunrise Region picture.
In the meantime, here’s how the rest of the postseason matchups shake out.
Sunset Region
Northwest League
The seeds: Legacy (No. 1), Palo Verde (No. 2), Cimarron (No. 3), Cheyenne (No. 4)
Legacy (8-0) went gate to wire to claim its first Northwest League crown, finishing one game ahead of perennial favorite Palo Verde (7-1).
Cimarron (6-2) might be the strongest No. 3 seed in town. Cheyenne (5-3) survived two coaching changes since the end of last year’s season to grab the final spot.
Southwest League
The seeds: Bishop Gorman (No. 1), Durango (No. 2), Desert Oasis (No. 3), Spring Valley (No. 4)
It’s not exactly a surprise that Gorman (8-0) ran the table in the Southwest.
Durango (7-1) bounced back from a 1-9 season to grab the No. 2 seed.
Desert Oasis (6-2) will make its first postseason appearance in its first year as a full-fledged league member.
Spring Valley (5-3) is the No. 4 seed.
Quarterfinal matchups
Nov. 6 at 7 p.m.
Spring Valley at Legacy
Desert Oasis at Palo Verde
Cimarron at Durango
Cheyenne at Bishop Gorman
Class 3A
The seeds: Moapa Valley (No. 1), Virgin Valley (No. 2), Boulder City (No. 3)
Moapa Valley (2-0) survived a rigorous league schedule to emerge as the No. 1 seed.
Virgin Valley (1-1) beat Boulder City (0-2) to grab the No. 2 seed.
The playoffs
Virgin Valley will host Boulder City on Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. That winner will travel north on Nov. 14 to take on the North’s No. 1 remaining seed.
Moapa Valley will host the other remaining North team on Nov. 14.

Class 2A
The seeds: The Meadows (No. 1), Mountain View (No. 2), Lincoln County (No. 3), Needles (No. 4)
The Meadows (7-0) replaced its starting quarterback this season and never missed a beat, running the table in the 2A Southern League.
Mountain View (6-1) is the No. 2 seed.
Lincoln County and Needles both finished 4-3, but the Lynx won the head-to-head meeting to claim the No. 3 seed.

The playoffs
Nov. 7 at 1 p.m.
Mountain View hosts Lincoln County, and The Meadows hosts Needles.
The two winners move into the state semifinals on Nov. 14.
Class 1A
The seeds: Pahranagat Valley (No. 1), Tonopah (No. 2), Spring Mountain (No. 3), Round Mountain (No. 4)
Pahranagat Valley (5-0) blows out so many teams that even officials figure they don’t need to show up. OK, that’s probably not what happened Thursday, but the Panthers never got a chance to finish 6-0 in league play because no officials were present for their game at Beatty.
Because the Panthers beat Tonopah (5-1) in their head-to-head meeting, there’s no need for a makeup game. Pahranagat Valley would still be the No. 1 seed and Tonopah the No. 2.
Spring Mountain (4-2) is the No. 3 seed, and Round Mountain (3-3) won the equivalent of a playoff eliminator against Henderson International on Thursday to get into the field.

The playoffs
Nov. 7 at 1 p.m.
Pahranagat Valley hosts Round Mountain, and Tonopah hosts Spring Mountain.
The two winners move into the state semifinals on Nov. 14.
