  • NLCS even as Giants prevail

    The Associated Press
    SAN FRANCISCO — The sight of Marco Scutaro on the ground in pain after getting flattened by Matt Holliday’s hard takeout was just the spark the San Francisco Giants needed.
    Scutaro even got into the act with his own big blow that helped the Giants end their home slide.

    NMHU Sports Information

    The New Mexico Highlands University women’s rodeo team roped a team title and the men picked up a reserve championship Friday at the annual Mesalands Community College Rodeo in Tucumcari.

    Breakaway roping was the first event with NMHU contestants. Kindee Wilson set the pace with a blistering 2.4 second run, which easily landed her a first place finish in the short round as well as the average. Chelsea DeMott, a native of Rio, Ill., also qualified.

  • Denver stages epic comeback

    The Associated Press

    SAN DIEGO — It took a quarterback of Peyton Manning’s caliber to pull off this kind of comeback.

    After the Denver Broncos slogged through a nightmare of a first half, Manning showed that he’s still one of the NFL’s best.

    Manning threw three touchdown passes in the second half and Tony Carter and Chris Harris scored off turnovers by Philip Rivers as the Broncos overcame a 24-0 halftime deficit to shock the San Diego Chargers 35-24 on Monday night.

  • Dons win first game of season

    Three Nathan Vigil touchdowns.
    Three safeties.
    And one happy West Las Vegas football team.
    That was what the final tally read on Saturday afternoon at Santa Fe Indian School, as the visiting Dons celebrated their first win of the season — and their first under first-year head coach Robert Alarcon.
    West’s 38-6 victory gives the team a 1-6 record as it reaches its bye week and a chance to heal some injuries and gear up for the heart of the District 2-3A schedule.

  • Redbirds open district slate by...

    A nasty-looking storm system brought lightning to the Las Vegas area Friday night.
    Robertson’s Dominic Lucero brought the thunder.
    Lucero gained 115 yards rushing in the first half alone and ended up unofficially near the 200-yard mark as the Cardinals won their homecoming game —and District 2-3A opener — over Pojoaque Valley by a 24-15 margin.
    Penalties kept Robertson from a more robust output, and at least two scores were negated by the yellow flags.

  • Cowboys’ air attack drops...

    Highlands outscored host Adams State 24-10 in the second half to break away for a 34-20 win in Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference football on Saturday afternoon in Alamosa, Colo.
    The Cowboys (6-1, 5-0)mustered only 35 yards rushing but more than made up for it with another prolific passing day.
    Emmanuel Lewis completed 36 of 67 passes for 437 yards and three touchdowns with one interception to keep NMHU unbeaten in RMAC play and tied with Colorado State-Pueblo for first place.

    NHL talks could resume Tuesday

    Labor negotiations between the NHL and the locked-out players’ association may resume Tuesday after a four-day break.
    The location and the agenda have yet to be determined. The sides held two days of talks this week in New York without discussion of hockey-related revenue — the core economic issue that has prevented the NHL regular season from starting on time.
