Probably arguably one of its sloppiest first halves of the season of Las Cruces, they put their standing in the district and state at risk!
The Las Cruces boys threw an interception at the one-yard line on its opening drive they lost a fumble that Alamogordo returned for 50 yards on its second drive and had a punt blocked on its second-to-last possession of the first half.
Alamogordo scored a touchdown off Las Cruces’ first-half fumble, but Las Cruces only allowed one field goal off its other two turnovers. The Bulldawgs massively out-gained Alamogordo in the first half but were haunted by their three turnovers and a bounty of penalties, which included six penalties in the first 15 minutes.
Las Cruces’ defense was backed inside its redzone three times in the first half but managed to force a pair of field goals, and Alamogordo’s only touchdown of the night came on a drive that started at the Bulldawgs’ 15-yard line. The Tigers led 13-10 at halftime. Both teams were scoreless in the second half and Alamogordo held onto the sweet victory!
