Taos boys soccer loses final game of the regular season, but still makes state tournament as a sixth seed

Taos Tigers boys soccer might have lost their final game of the season when it traveled to Moriarty on Saturday (Oct. 26) and lost 0-2, but they have better things in store for the future. On Sunday afternoon (Oct. 27), the Tigers were chosen as the sixth seed in the state tournament and will host Valley High School on Saturday (Nov. 2) at Taos Eco Park.

The winner of the game between Taos and Valley will then take on St. Pius X, who has a bye in the first round, the following weekend.

Twelve teams made the cut, with Albuquerque Academy being chosen as the first seed, Los Alamos as the second seed, Los Lunas as the fourth seed and Chaparral as the fifth seed.

Los Alamos and Taos can meet again in the state tournament in the semifinals if both teams advance that far.

Taos finished out the regular season with a 14-3-1 record overall and a 4-2 record in district play.

Peñasco volleyball loses to Coronado in close match, but sweeps Mesa Vista in straight sets

The Peñasco Lady Panthers split their two most recent matches, losing a closely contested battle to undefeated district-rival Coronado on the road on Tuesday (Oct. 22) and defeating Mesa Vista in straight sets on Thursday (Oct. 24).

Against Coronado, Peñasco had started off slow and lost its first two sets 25-14 and 25-17. But then the Lady Panthers picked it up and followed up by winning the third and fourth sets 25-16 and 25-20.

Head coach Maxine Abeyta credited her team for finding their groove in the midst of the match. She also said that the reason why they won the third and fourth sets is that her team started to move their feet better.

In the fifth and final set, though, Peñasco lost 15-11 and Abeyta said that was because her team had trouble setting the ball up consistently.

When Peñasco faced Mesa Vista, however, things went according to plan. The Lady Panthers won in straight sets: 25-13, 25-9, 25-12. It was the second time this season that Peñasco defeated Mesa Vista in that manner.
