    Funny how soccer works.

    The Cowgirls, who did not score a first half goal in the first six games, have scored a goal in the first stanza each of the last six games.

    New Mexico Highlands (9-3-4, 6-2-4 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) battled to a 1-1 tie with visiting Metropolitan State University of Denver (12-1-3, 9-0-3 RMAC) Sunday afternoon at Perkins Stadium.

    Metro was ranked eighth in NCAA Division II women’s soccer.

    The Cowgirls took set one, but the Grizzlies took the final three sets as the New Mexico Highlands volleyball team (10-14, 5-9 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) fell to Adams State (13-10, 7-7 RMAC) 22-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-10 Saturday night.

  • District champs! RHS girls’...

    A 2-0 win over visiting Taos on Thursday afternoon clinched the district championship for Robertson’s girls’ soccer team.
    And it really wasn’t that close.

    Clamping down defensively, the Lady Cardinals mostly controlled possession across the pitch, limiting the Lady Tigers’ chances and making it a relatively easy shift for Robertson junior goalkeeper Nicoletta Litherland, who still recorded six saves.

  • Rally not enough for Dons

    The touchdown that wasn’t would’ve won West Las Vegas its fourth consecutive football game.

    Instead, the incomplete-pass call that was helped doom the Dons Friday night at Pojoaque Valley, which held on for a 21-19 verdict.

  • Lady Dons spike Taos for 4-0...

    The story began the same way each set for Taos’ volleyball team this past Thursday night at Gillie Lopez Gym — with West Las Vegas’ Jaylen Gutierrez slamming the ball through the Lady Tigers’ defenses.

    And each set had the same outcome — a Lady Dons victory.

    West coasted to a 3-0 sweep by scores of 25-10, 25-12, 25-19, improving its overall record to 13-4 and staying unbeaten in District 2-4A at 4-0.

  • Late picks help doom Cowboys

    Ryan Holland jumped in front of a Lance Orender pass, plucked the football away and then raced 57 yards downfield for a touchdown with 2:20 left in regulation Saturday, lifting Adams State to a 41-34 win over New Mexico Highlands in Alamosa, Colo.

    The Cowboys, who’d led 14-0 and had reclaimed control at 34-31 on a Zach Tapia 43-yard field goal with 7:22 remaining, allowed 10 unanswered points to the Grizzlies to close the game.

    Highlands dips to 3-5 overall and 3-3 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. Adams State is 3-5, 2-4.

  • Cowgirls zero in on RMAC berth

    The Cowgirls used a goal in each half to win its final away game of the regular season as the New Mexico Highlands soccer team (9-3-3, 6-2-3 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) defeated Colorado Mesa (0-12-4, 0-9-3 RMAC) 2-1 Friday afternoon in Grand Junction, Colo.

    In the 70th minute with the score knotted at one, freshman Hannah Dahlquist put a through ball past the defenders. Sophomore Anyssa Dagnino caught up to the pass and beat the goalkeeper one on one to net the game winner.

  • Lady Dons end Pojo streak

    No opponent has been a thorn in the side of the West Las Vegas volleyball program quite like Pojoaque Valley has.
    Seemingly every time the Lady Dons have assembled a potent lineup with legitimate state title aspirations and potential, the district rival Elkettes have held the trump card.

    Pojoaque has been just plain tough for everyone to handle, winning a string of district championships and multiple state titles — including the last five in a row, dating to 2009.
