new-mexicoWalatowa Charter 46 New Mexico 28 - District 1A Semifinals

The New Mexico Roadrunners had only five players suited up for the game. We came out roaring with aggressive play in the first half being tied at 18-apiece. The first half was one of our best performances, if not the best. The players truly stepped up in every aspect and played with a positive attitude. With the fact that we only had five players and Walatowa was able to sub with a full bench, they took advantage of it while we ran out of gas. Walatowa ended the game with a 28 point second half to our 10 points.

The team would like to thank the fans for all of their support this season and the success that we have enjoyed. (Contributed by Head Coach Roderick Stickley)
