It was a dominant night for the Taos High School football team, who faced off against the Española Valley Sundevils on Friday (Oct. 15) on their home turf and came up with the 50-0 victory. 

The game was stopped halfway through the third quarter in accordance with the NMAA’s “Mercy Rule”, which states: “A game is ended at halftime or during the second half if a team is 50 or more points behind.”

The teams went to the locker room at halftime with the scoreboard reading 43-0. With a little over three minutes left in the third quarter, Tigers quarterback Daemon Ely punched one more into the end zone to end the game. 

Though Ely’s arm was the star of the night, running back Matt Suarzo saw his fair share of the end zone as well, punching in three touchdowns of his own.

The victory continues the Tigers’ winning streak, which now stands at 4 (with an overall record of 4-4.)

Next, the Tigers look to face off against Pojoaque Valley (with a solid 4-2 record of their own) on Oct. 22 in Pojoaque.
