  • Plenty at stake as dinged-up...

    As the West Las Vegas Dons get ready for Friday night's regular season finale vs. St. Mike's -- a game that figures to essentially decide the district championship among three teams now in contention -- health could be a factor.

    The Dons (6-3, 4-1) expect to play without starting quarterback John Balizan and leading tackler Steve Sandoval due to injuries sustained in last week's Vegas Bowl.

    While WLV head coach Adrian Gonzales said he expects both players to be back in time for the first round of the state playoffs, their absences will be felt in one of the biggest games of the season.
