Gautsche says he’s OK with sharing Lobos’ QB job

Playing quarterback is difficult enough without looking over one’s shoulder while doing it. That, Cole Gautsche said on Tuesday, hasn’t happened, isn’t happening and won’t happen. New Mexico junior quarterback Cole Gautsche says he has no qualms about sharing playing time. (Roberto E. Rosales/Albuquerque Journal) “I’ve always been a real positive person,” said Gautsche, the starting pitcher to Lamar Jordan’s relief pitcher in the University of New Mexico’s lineup at quarterback. “I just try to go in there and do the best I can. “Whoever’s in there doesn’t matter. I’m trying to do the best I can for the team, whatever my role is.” After Tuesday’s practice, University of New Mexico coach Bob Davie said Gautsche, a junior, and Jordan, a redshirt freshman, likely will continue to share playing time in the remaining five games on the schedule.

Could this be the year of the Ram?

Rio Rancho High School’s varsity girls soccer team edged La Cueva 2-1 Friday evening at the APS soccer complex to win the APS Metro Championships title. The last “Year of the Ram” was in 2007, when the Rams won the Class 5A title.

Lexi Nutter scored twice, both on long free kicks in the first half, and the Rams (7-0), off to their best start in school history, held on for the win. Cassie Boren tallied the Bears’ goal, which came with less than 18 minutes to play against sophomore ‘keeper Sara Wilmot, who’d also allowed a late goal to Cleveland in the Rams’ 2-1 semifinal win Wednesday.

La Cueva got to the championship game out of pool play and beat its District 2-5A rival and last year’s 5A champ, Eldorado, 2-1. The Rams also beat one of their district foes (in 1-6A), the Storm, to get to the showdown with the Bears.

La Cueva (4-1), featured in a video on YouTube (“Hell Week”), gets a chance to avenge that rare loss Thursday when it meets the Rams again at the APS complex at 4:30 p.m
