  • NFL replay rule under review

    The Associated Press

    NEW YORK — The rule that negated using video replay to confirm a Houston Texans touchdown “may be too harsh” and will be re-examined immediately, NFL director of football operations Ray Anderson said Friday.

    Anderson, also co-chairman of the competition committee that suggests rules changes to the owners, said a change could come this year. The NFL traditionally resists changing rules during a season.

    Robertson High sophomore forward Caitlin Diefendorf led a list of 10 local athletes honored on All-State soccer teams recognized by New Mexico High School Soccer Coaches Association.

    Over the past couple years, Diefendorf has emerged as a prolific scorer for the Lady Cardinals, helping lead a run to the state quarterfinals last fall under longtime mentor Ray Parks and the state semifinals this past month with coach Ian Williamson.

  • Cardinals, Warriors eye playoff...

    The last time Robertson and Ruidoso met on a football field, there wasn’t all that much separating them on the gridiron or on the scoreboard, never mind their rankings.

    In fact, the Cardinals led that game in the fourth quarter, albeit briefly, thanks to a fumble return touchdown that made it 21-18 Robertson.

    But the Warriors went on to score the next eight points and took a 26-21 verdict Oct. 19 at Cardinal Stadium.

  • Lobos upset No. 21 UConn

    The Associated Press

    ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands  — New Mexico kept No. 21 Connecticut from winning the lone tournament it could have won this season.

    Tournament MVP Kendall Williams scored 15 points and the Lobos staved off a late UConn rally en route to a 66-60 victory in the championship game of the Paradise Jam.

    New Mexico (4-0) led by 10 points early in the second half, and by nine with as little as 7:11 left. But UConn (4-1) went on a 10-0 run and took over the lead after three Ryan Boatright free throws with 2:23 to play.

    It was also the second straight day of double-figure scoring for Baca.
