ARTESIA, N.M. — Junior forward Ashley Antone scored 18 points and fellow junior forward Amanda Mitchel hit 12 in a 69-52 win over Artesia Dec. 9 in the annual City of Champions tournament. The Lady Bengals’ win was good enough for third place in the tournament.

Pats out of state 5A playoffs

BELEN, N.M. — The No. 7 seeded Miyamura Patriots looked good on offense and defense going into the locker room Nov. 18, with the score tied 14-14 against No. 2 and undefeated Belen High in the state quarterfinals of the 5A football playoffs.

But the Patriots (9-3) failed to muster that same enthusiasm and fell to the Eagles 46-21 before a rather large throng of travelling Patriots’ fans. The Eagles scored an unanswered 13 points in the third quarter.

“We had a bye game last week and I guess you could say we were trying to shake off some rust,” Eagles’ head coach Greg Henington said after the game. “We’re pleased with the win.”
