Taos Tigers fall to St. Mike's Horsemen, now sit at 5-2 overall

Tigers sputter in second half without their on-field general, Jude Suazo

Posted

For only the fourth time in the 21st century, the Taos Tigers and the St. Mike's Horsemen met on the field to hash out their differences - blocking, tackling, pounding and pushing each other for 48-minutes for territory and school pride.

And for the fourth straight time, the Horsemen have emerged as the victors. This time it was a 41-21 win at Anaya Stadium over the Tigers in a District 2-4A matchup Oct. 6.

The game was close in the first half with Taos leading 14-6 at the half. However, 28 unanswered points in the second half, and the absence of Taos quarterback Jude Sauzo (injury), led to the lopsided final score and the second loss of the season for the Tigers. The extent of Suazo's injuries were not immediately known.

Taos has a bye week coming up, and will return to action in two weeks when the team travels back to Las Vegas to take on the Dons of West Las Vegas Oct. 20.
