Carlsbad is coming off a huge win over Alamogordo last week. Can they pull off a second upset this week?
Artesia vs. Carlsbad
The Bulldogs are the class of the
4A division and they have a legit claim that they might be the top team
overall. Carlsbad has talent to
compete with teams and they proved that last week in a big upset
Carlsbad has two great players in QB
Nathan Clark and RB Caleb Bellah, both of these two young men can really
play. Last week they pulled off a
huge upset beating 5A power Alamogordo who was undefeated and ranked in the
top 10 in the 5A ranks. That win
has really given this Carlsbad team a ton of confidence.
Artesia has been a machine all
season. They have had big wins and
played well against tough competition in Rio Rancho and also Hobbs. Tons of things have been said about
Landry Jones but here's some love to the lineman for the Bulldogs. Anyone who knows anything about football
will tell you it all starts with the big boys up front. Payton Kirkpatrick and company have been
great all season.
That big win last week gave
confidence that they can play with just about anyone. Alamogordo was a very good team but this week
they face a great team in Artesia.
Artesia 42 Carlsbad 20.
