With a nearly exact reversal of their scores from a couple days earlier, New Mexico Highlands topped intrastate rival Eastern New Mexico 72-62 on Monday evening at the Wilson Complex.
It was the home opener for the Cowgirls (3-3 to start season three under head coach Tiffany Darling).
As with the teams’ previous encounter — a 72-63 ENMU win in Portales on Saturday — Highlands took a lead to intermission. But this time the Cowgirls held on, avoiding a major dropoff in shooting accuracy in the second half.
