    That’s how the U.S. women’s soccer team reacted Wednesday night to learning that Japan would be the opponent in the World Cup final.

    The Americans beat Germany 2-0 on Tuesday to reach the championship game. Japan defeated England 2-1 on a late own goal. The rematch of the 2011 final won by Japan on penalty kicks is Sunday in Vancouver.

  • Zamora takes West volleyball...

    As friend or foe, Eric Zamora has become a familiar face to Meadow City volleyball fans dating to the early 1990s.

    Now he’s a head coach for West Las Vegas, and his mission is to help guide the Lady Dons back to the state final.

    The Las Vegas Train Robbers are scheduled to have five more home games this summer.

    But Las Vegas fans will only be able to see the team three more times in the Meadow City itself, weather permitting.

    The Pecos League late this past week indicated it would schedule two of the team’s remaining home dates for Santa Rosa instead of Las Vegas. The league Web site made it official on Monday that the home games scheduled for July 7 and July 13 would be held at Santa Rosa High School.

    No reason for the move was specified.

    In addition to La Plaza, Santa Rosa and Taos fielded Juniors baseball teams for the seven-game tournament at Mora High School.
