    A resume that includes a 17-3 regular season and unbeaten 6-0 mark in district helped the Robertson girls’ soccer team secure a No. 3 seed in the upcoming Class 1A-4A state tournament.

    It is the highest state tournament seed in program history.

  • Dallas falters in overtime

    The Associated Press

    ARLINGTON, Texas — Colt McCoy did it again. The small-town West Texas kid calmly led a winning drive at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

    McCoy’s successful return to his home state trumped Tony Romo’s dramatic return to the game.

  • Locals back in ring Nov. 15

    Las Vegas professional boxers Arturo “El Toro” Crespin and Shawn “The Educator” Gallegos are due back in the ring Nov. 15 as part of “Battle At Five Points,” a joint effort from Chavez Promotions and Crespin Promotions.

    Crespin (12-3-1, one no-contest, four wins by knockout) is scheduled to take on Maurice Louishome (7-0-1) in a middleweight main event.

    Crespin has won his last two fights, most recently a six-round unanimous decision over Augustine Renteria in August.

    Funny how soccer works.

    The Cowgirls, who did not score a first half goal in the first six games, have scored a goal in the first stanza each of the last six games.

    New Mexico Highlands (9-3-4, 6-2-4 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) battled to a 1-1 tie with visiting Metropolitan State University of Denver (12-1-3, 9-0-3 RMAC) Sunday afternoon at Perkins Stadium.

    Metro was ranked eighth in NCAA Division II women’s soccer.

  • District champs! RHS girls’...

    A 2-0 win over visiting Taos on Thursday afternoon clinched the district championship for Robertson’s girls’ soccer team.
    And it really wasn’t that close.

    Clamping down defensively, the Lady Cardinals mostly controlled possession across the pitch, limiting the Lady Tigers’ chances and making it a relatively easy shift for Robertson junior goalkeeper Nicoletta Litherland, who still recorded six saves.

  • Rally not enough for Dons

    The touchdown that wasn’t would’ve won West Las Vegas its fourth consecutive football game.

    Instead, the incomplete-pass call that was helped doom the Dons Friday night at Pojoaque Valley, which held on for a 21-19 verdict.
