  • Punching pals - Childhood...

    With the hard rock — Def Leppard’s “Gods of War,” to be specific — cranked up at top volume on a nearby sound system, longtime friends Arturo Crespin and Fidel Maldonado Jr. set their camaraderie aside.

    Then they began punching each other.

    It’s hardly unusual for reunions of these two to involve such violence. And this past Sunday, each of them welcomed the opportunity to slam his fists into the other and to be treated in kind.

    It’s what they do.

    The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women’s soccer tournament is coming to Las Vegas.

  • Beasties: One and done

    It was a tale of two halves Saturday in the opening round of the Class 1A-3A girls’ state soccer tournament.

    No. 6 seed Robertson dashed out to a 2-0 head start only to be outgunned 3-0 in the second half in an upset loss to No. 11 East Mountain.

    The Lady Cardinals, AKA “Beastie Girls,” finished 14-6 overall. Saturday’s contest marked only the second time all fall they’ve lost at home.
