Cards nip Dons in playoff classic

Robertson held off crosstown rival West Las Vegas 14-13 in an instant classic of a state football quarterfinal Saturday at Cardinal Stadium.

Robertson (10-1) will host Portales, which beat Taos on Friday, this coming weekend for a spot in the Class 4A final.

West, which last week won its first playoff game since 2003, was 24 yards away from the potential winning score, but John Balizan's pass to brother David in the end zone went incomplete, and the Cards took over on downs with six seconds left.
