Lobos focus on passing game during bye

Those who have pilloried Lobos football coach Bob Davie for those four consecutive running plays last Saturday at Air Force – and they are legion – are conveniently forgetting UNM’s previous offensive series. Passing the ball, like running with it, carries no guarantee. On that series, which started at the New Mexico 20-yard line with 10:08 left in the game and the Lobos trailing 35-31, three running plays gained a first down at the 31. On the ensuing set of downs, Jhurell Pressley rushed for 1 yard. On second-and-9, quarterback Lamar Jordan threw some 25 yards downfield. Tight end Reece White got his hands on the ball, but, jostled by Falcons free safety Christian Spears – contact, but not enough to draw a flag – could not make the catch. By the numbers UNM passing Lamar Jordan: 31-53-1, 418 yards (69.7 per game), 4 TDs Cole Gautsche: 12-26-0, 105 yards (21.0 per game), 0 TDs Clayton Mitchem: 4-9-1, 51 yards (12.8 per game), 0 TDs Team: 84.6 yards per game, ranked 124th of 125 FBS ...

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
