    For the second consecutive season, the Meadow City’s two middle school football teams carry undefeated records into their head-to-head meeting on the gridiron.

    Memorial Middle School is 6-0 and West Las Vegas Middle School is 5-0 as they prepare for Thursday’s Vegas Bowl Junior under the lights at Perkins Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. — moved back from the original 4 p.m. — and gates open at 5:30. Tickets are $3 adults and $1 students.

  • Cowgirls stun No. 15 Mines

    Pulling away with three second-half goals for a 4-1 triumph, New Mexico Highlands University surprised Colorado School of Mines, the 15th ranked team in NCAA Division II women’s soccer, on Sunday at Perkins Stadium.

    Highlands is now 9-6 overall and 7-4 in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. Mines falls to 11-2-1 and 7-2-1, respectively.

    Julissa Rodriguez and Janelle McGee each scored two goals and had one assist apiece for the Cowgirls, who visit Colorado Mesa on Friday in Grand Junction.

  • RHS boys looking for strong...

    Winning ugly is far better than losing pretty, as far as Robertson boys’ soccer coach Clarence Montoya is concerned.

    His Cardinals did the former in a 3-1 tally against visiting Pojoaque Valley on Monday on campus, extending their season-long winning streak to four games.

    Robertson and Pojoaque traded one broken possession after another on a warm afternoon in Las Vegas that felt more like a lazy early summer day.

  • Rangers, Cardinals in World...

    The Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals, with a lot of symmetry, are all set to get acquainted in the World Series.

  • Turnovers costly for Cowboys

    The schedule officially got tougher on Saturday for the New Mexico Highlands football team (4-3, 2-3 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference).

    After a string of games decided — for better or worse — in the final minutes of regulation or overtime, the Cowboys lost 42-14 at Chadron State (Neb.).

  • NMHU spikers can’t slow 12th...

    A difficult three-night swing through the Denver area resulted in three defeats for Highlands’ volleyball team (8-13 overall, 3-9 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference).

    Highlands opened the trip Thursday with a 25-14, 25-23, 25-22 loss at No. 12 nationally ranked Metro State, which hit a blazing .365 and improved to 17-4 and 9-3 with additional weekend wins over Colorado State-Pueblo and Adams State.

    The Cowgirls got nine kills from Darian Mullen and eight by Dominique Benton.

  • Sixth straight win for Cowgirl...

    Janelle McGee scored twice and Julissa Rodriguez had one goal and one assist Friday night as Highlands’ women’s soccer team won its sixth straight match, a 3-0 shutout of visiting Colorado-Colorado Springs (7-6, 3-6).

    The Cowgirls ran their record to 8-6 overall and 6-4 in the RMAC.

    The Mountain Lions managed just three shots on goal, and all three were stopped by Bianca Contreres, the third goalkeeper the Cowgirls employed Friday.
