  • Second half dooms Dons at Laguna

    David McGee racked up nearly 300 offensive yards Friday night, leading the Laguna Acoma football team (3-3) to a 46-6 rout of visiting West Las Vegas.

    McGee passed the century mark in rushing yardage by halftime, and he didn’t let up after that.

    Ironically, it was the Dons who led the game early. Anthony Medina, taking a toss from Jose Juan Montaño, finished the visitors’ game-opening drive in the end zone. After a two-point conversion try failed, West Las Vegas led 6-0 with 10:47 left in the first quarter.

  • No. 4 Ruidoso doubles up Cards

    Robertson’s last gasp almost took Ruidoso’s breath away on Friday night.

    With 2:31 left and the host Warriors sitting on a cozy 21-point cushion, they coughed up the ball near midfield.
    Jose Estrada came up with the fumble.
