Nick Abreu breaks free for a touchdown against Reno last week.

Douglas (0-1, 0-0) ended 24 years of frustration against the Lancers last year, defeating McQueen (1-0, 0-0) 42-35 in Minden. McQueen is bringing back a large class of veteran letter-winners and appears to be back in their stalwart defensive form, bringing aggressive pressure from the front seven while staying ball-hungry in the defensive backfield. Douglas’ season-opener was the Tigers’ first real chance to see a real opponent. McQueen handled a traditional power in Nevada Union on the road. The last time Douglas won at John Robb Stadium was in 1987 (29-22).

What to look for:

McQueen’s offense always relies on feeding the ball through a variety of outlets, primarily on the ground, which is part of what has made them so hard to beat over the years. Look for running back Lucas Weber, a 6-2, 193-pounder with deceiving speed and punishing strength, to get the bulk of the carries.

Douglas’ opener exhibited everything you’d expect from a team that had been confined to small spaces in practice for the prior week – strong inside run on offense, strong run defense on the other side of the ball. With a number of outdoor practices under their belt from this week (the team traveled to Whittell to get some looks in on an actual field), look for the passing game and the defensive backfield to take a step forward this week.

Wes Hundley looks for an open receiver against Reno last week.

Senior Mason Rhoads quietly had a big game for Douglas against Reno. He carried the ball 19 times for 129 yards. Wes Hundley had nine carries for 68 yards and Nick Abreu carried four times for 52 yards and two touchdowns.

AJ Pfaffenberger was Douglas’ top receiver in Week 1, hauling in three passes for 32 yards. Garet Rice and Bailey Vidaurri each had two catches.

Senior quarterback Wes Hundley completed on outstanding 70.5 percent of his 17 pass attempts for 90 yards.

The offensive line also had a very nice night, pushing holes open on 10 consecutive runs to start the game and not allowing a sack all night.

On defense, Cale Kynett and Kaleb Foster tied for the team lead in tackles at 12.5 each. Wyatt Eichhorst added a sack. Taylor Souza had the interception he returned for a touchdown and Abreu had a nice pass breakup near the goal line.

The Douglas High offensive line showed early signs of being a dominant force in Northern Nevada this season.

Spanish Springs and Bishop Manogue  were the only teams not to get a game off in Week 1. The scores around Northern Division I played out like this: Reno 28, Douglas 21; Galena 41, Lassen, Calif., 19; McQueen 34, Nevada Union, Calif., 16; Reed 38, Foothill, Calif., 28; Carson 23, Hug 13; Damonte Ranch 48, North Valleys 0

What’s happening around the league this week:

Bishop Manogue at Hug, 7 p.m.; Carson at Reno, 7 p.m.; Damonte Ranch at Spanish Springs, 7:30 p.m.; Douglas at McQueen, 7 p.m. Galena at North Valleys, 7 p.m.

My picks (I never pick the Douglas game):

Manogue over Hug, Reno over Carson, Spanish Springs over Damonte Ranch and Galena over North Valleys.

What we learned in Week 1:

Bailey Vidaurri runs with the ball against Reno last week.

Reed was everything we’ve come to expect while McQueen handled a traditionally powerful Nevada Union squad in Grass Valley. North Valleys getting shut out was a bit of a surprise, but Damonte has made a solid living on the defensive side of the ball the last five seasons or so.  I would’ve liked to see Manogue and Spanish Springs get their game off, as those are two intriguing teams. We’ll learn more this week.
