  • ‘Beasties’ blank Pojoaque

    Elena Martinez scored three goals and Amber Yara had two scores to lead Robertson to a 7-0 shutout at Pojoaque on Tuesday.

    “It was a very good game overall,” said RHS head coach Ray Parks. “Our passing game is much improved, which was important on such a sloppy, wet field.”

    The teams encountered rain throughout the match.

    Martinez scored her first from the top of the penalty box off an assist from Anissa Gallegos in the fifth minute. She then took a feed from Lexus Jaramillo roughly 10 minutes later to make it 2-0 by halftime.
