Los Alamos 11 12 11 20 54

Taos 21 22 23 14 80

The Tigers rolled over the rival team from Los Alamos on April 26 at home. Taos got off to an early, and substantial lead in the first quarter and didn't let go until the fourth quarter when the game was already well in hand. Senior Devin Archuleta led the Tigers with 19 points, 15 of which were from beyond the three-point arc. Senior Edgar Varela also scored in the double digits with 12 points and Junior Anthony Padilla put up 14. On the defensive end, Senior Mateo Espinoza, Senior Josiah Duke and Junior Anthony Padilla grabbed five rebounds apiece. The key to the game was the Tigers' impressive distance shooting combined with their offensive rebounds (which totaled 9 of the teams' 29 total rebounds.)

Española Valley

16 23 21 10 70

Despite a fourth quarter surge, the Taos Tigers just weren't able to mount an effective comeback in a 70-53 road loss to Española Valley. Junior star Anthony Padilla's 17 points (6 from the three-point arc) was not enough to overcome a staggering Sundevils defense. The Tigers lost their bite from distance as well, shooting just 24 percent from outside. Their night at the freethrow line wasn't much better as THS managed to shoot just 52 percent from the line. Junior Isiah Jeantete was the Tigers' defensive player, with 5 rebounds on the night.

Pojoaque Valley

7 18 9 22 56

Taos 12 24 21 10 67

The THS Tigers' stifling defense was the key to an 11-point victory against the Elks on Taos' home court. The Tigers held Pojoaque to single digits until halfway through the second quarter and the Elks were never able to recover. A repeat of that feat greeted the Elks in the third quarter as they managed just 9 points in the second half as the fourth quarter began.

Senior Edgar Varela dominated with 23 points in the face of an aimless Elks' defense. Junior Isiah Jeantete followed Varela's example and put up 18 of his own.
