  • Cowboys push No. 17 Mines to...

    Lance Orender has completed a lot of passes in recent weeks to help New Mexico Highlands win consecutive football games.

    But one that got away led to a narrow win for the 17th ranked Colorado School of Mines on Saturday at Perkins Stadium.

    With Highlands trailing 42-35, Orender had the Cowboys driving into Mines territory. But Drew Stephon intercepted a pass with roughly three minutes left in the game. The Orediggers were then able to pick up a couple of first downs and burn the remainder of the clock.

    For most of Tuesday afternoon’s matchup with Class 5A power Los Alamos, the Robertson girls’ soccer team was every bit the equal to its neighbor to the northwest.
