  • Youth Soccer - Sept. 20, 2013

    The Las Vegas Youth Soccer League has kicked off its fall 2013 slate, which will run through Oct. 27.

    This past weekend saw a full slate of scheduled matches cancelled due to the storm.

    Approximately 300 youngsters age 4-12 are competing in 28 teams split among four age divisions. The LVYSL is run by volunteers, including a board led by presidents Shelby and Rachel Curtis.

    This year the league is carrying a World Cup theme, with teams named for various countries. The FIFA men’s World Cup takes place in 2014.

  • Cowgirl soccer silences Wolves

    Andrea Duke found the back of the net in the 70th minute Wednesday night, lifting New Mexico Highlands past Colorado State-Pueblo 1-0 in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference women’s soccer.

    The Cowgirls, who improved to 3-0-2, dominated the Perkins Stadium pitch much of the evening. They kept the action largely on the CSUP side with 26 shots, including 10 on goal.

    Crystal Schuder had four of those shots on goal; Duke had three.

    That pressure finally caught up to ThunderWolves goalkeeper Savannah Thompson, a preseason All-RMAC honoree.
