  • Wade ticketed for Game 2 flop

    The Associated Press

    MIAMI  — The flop is having an impact on the playoffs, and it’s being caught much more than it was in the regular season.

    Miami guard Dwyane Wade became the latest recipient of a postseason flopping fine Monday when the NBA ordered him to give up $5,000 after a review showed he over-exaggerated a foul during Game 2 of the finals that was charged to San Antonio’s Manu Ginobili.

  • North-South

    Joseph Armijo and James Gonzales (pictured) helped lead the Class 2A-3A North football team to a 26-3 victory Friday night in Albuquerque. The recent Robertson graduates were instrumental in the Cardinals’ 2013 state championship. After a tight 6-3 first quarter, the North put 20 unanswered points on the board at Community Stadium.

  • Kings lead series 2-0

    LOS ANGELES — If the Los Angeles Kings ever looked down from the tightrope they’re walking in the NHL playoffs, they would surely fall.

    Three straight games with multigoal deficits, including a 4-2 hole late in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals. Three straight overtime contests, the result hanging on every shift.

    Willie Mitchell realizes the comeback Kings are on a perilous path, but they haven’t fallen off yet. He also knows they’re two wins away from raising the Cup again.

  • Rainout in White Sands game

    The Las Vegas Train Robbers struck first Saturday night at Rodriguez Park.

    Then the White Sands Pupfish struck back.

    And then Mother Nature chased them both away, putting them both in a “timeout” like petulant children.

    A thunderstorm and downpour early in the third inning led to cancellation of the game — and the rest of the scheduled four-game series was in doubt as of press time.

    It’s the fourth time this season a Robbers game has been rained out, which is a league high.

  • Robbers on win streak

    Corey Deighan limited the Trinidad Triggers to a single earned run and struck out five through seven solid innings Wednesday night, and the visiting Las Vegas Train Robbers picked up a 5-3 win.

    It was the Train Robbers’ second win in as many nights at Central Park in Trinidad, Colo. They’d won three straight — their longest win streak to date — including a 9-4 win Monday night at the division-leading Santa Fe Fuego (14-5).

    Las Vegas never trailed, although Trinidad tied it 1-1 after one complete inning.

  • Major moves in Mora hoops

    New coaches will man the sidelines this coming winter at Mora boys’ and girls’ basketball games following wholesale changes in the high school’s coaching staff.

    Marco Sanchez, a teacher with the Mora school district, has been hired to replace veteran coach James Branch at the helm of the Rangers’ boys’ basketball team.

    And Greg Laumbach is the heir apparent to longtime coach Mark Cassidy in overseeing the Rangerettes program. Laumbach learned of his selection within hours of winning election as Mora County sheriff on Tuesday.
