Boys’ Soccer

The boys came out on the short end against the neighboring Rehoboth Lynx, 2-1,  on Aug. 24 but there is plenty of season left to provide more exciting games like this one.

Cross Country

The boys’ and girls’ cross country teams will open their season today, Sept. 1, at the Rehoboth Invite. The races start at 3 pm.


Thursday night lights did not bother the Patriot football team on Aug. 24 as the purple-clad home team ran over, under, and around the visiting Grants’ Pirates 47-7.

Except for the single play that cost Gallup a touchdown, the Bengal boys’ used QB Matt Chavez and Receiver/Defensive Back Brandon Vidal well. Chavez presented many problems for Grants with his passing and running skills, while Vidal caught two passes and intercepted one by Grants for a 3-score night. Not bad for opening the season!

The Patriots will visit the Rio Grande Ravens on Sept. 2 at Milne Stadium at 1 pm in Albuquerque.

Girls’ Soccer

The girls’ won two games on Friday Aug. 25 on the Rehoboth pitch, edging out the host Lynx 1-0 and blasting the Academy of Technology and Classics 9-0. ATC is a small private school in Santa Fe.


The Patriot volleyball team warmed up for a week off by visiting downtown Shiprock and coming out of the Pit with a 3-0 victory over the Lady Chieftains. The game was played on Aug. 24 while the next scheduled match is to be determined at a tournament in Moriarty today, Sept. 1.
