Dons put Raton away early

West Las Vegas' football team made its return home a successful one, trampling Raton 59-7 on a rainy Friday night at the Herrera Complex.

The game was halted early in the fourth quarter after Darian Williams' touchdown run pushed the Dons' lead over the 50-point mercy rule threshold.

West improves to 2-4 and hosts Tucumcari for homecoming next week. The Rattlers cancelled their scheduled Friday game due to a reported shooting that claimed one life and threatened another the previous day in that community.
