Robertson High School is back in the Class 4A state football championship game.
The Cardinals ran their record to 12-0 by beating Hatch Valley 38-20 on a cool Saturday at Cardinal Stadium. The semifinal win is the first in the teams' last three meetings, including the 2015 state championship game last December in Hatch.
Robertson, the No. 1 seed, will play at No. 2 Portales, a winner over No. 6 St. Mike's in the other semifinal.
