In its 62-46 defeat of visiting West Las Vegas on Wednesday night at Ben Lujan Gymnasium, Pojoaque pumped its district record against Las Vegas teams to 2-0.
But the outcome was far from certain early in the fourth quarter.
Tomas Benavidez had just driven to the hoop and scored off a pass from Ambrosio Castellano to bring the Dons within 43-40, and West looked to have a little momentum on its side. Ryan Montoya answered for the Elks, but a bucket by T.J. Esquibel made it 46-42.
