The Socorro Warriors football team's offensive game picked up speed as they ran their plays and marched down the field last Friday during their homecoming game against the Estancia Bears. Still, the Warriors could not seem to close the deal on Friday night against the Estancia Bears, losing 8 – 54 for homecoming.
The Magdalena Steers went into their game against Jal with a 4-1 record. The Steers were holding their own against the 3-3 Panthers, until halftime. The score was 19 – 13 Jal Panthers starting the third quarter. The Steers seemed to lose steam on defense and offense, scoring no more points and increasing their turnovers, as the Panthers play was rough and a little dirty. The Steers had multiple attempts at touchdowns, but all were cut short by the Panther's defense and the ball was intercepted for a Jal touchdown once.
The Alamo Navajo Cougars pulled out a 3 – 0 win against the Reserve Mountaineers on October 4 in Alamo. The game was unruly with multiple errors and saves on both sides of the net. The Cougars strength seems to be their ability to recover from errors, and they aren't afraid to dig and agressively attack the ball. The Mountaineers are more, well, reserved.
"Close, but no cigar" seems to be a theme for the Socorro Warriors this fall season, as the Lady Warriors chalk up a loss on Tuesday night in a 0 – 3 loss against the Deming Lady Wildcats.

In the women's division the NM Queens had less success on the scoreboard but managed to finish with a flourish.
The Lady Warriors soccer team had mercy on the the Ruidoso Warriors on Tuesday, beating them 10-0 in a mercy rule ending after the first half. This is the result of a young Socorro team playing a team equivalent in age and experience, and gives an indication of their potential future if they hold together as a cohesive team.
A disappointingly small crowd cheered on the Reserve Mountaineers for their homecoming matchup against the Animas Panthers on Sept. 27.
It was a battle until the end for the Lady Steers last Friday against the Estancia Bears. They won 3-2 in five closely matched sets after the final score of 17-15 in the fifth set.

The team shows the signs of maturity expected from a team of juniors and seniors who have been playing together for 4-5 years. Communication and teamwork is strong.
