Santa Rosa vs. Cloudcraft

Cloudcraft and Santa Rosa have been two of the better teams in the 2A ranks all season long.  They both appear to be serious threats for a title run this season.


Santa Rosa is sitting at 3-1 on the season beating Questa, Fort Sumner and Estancia but they lost last week to a very good Dexter team.  Santa Rosa has been solid on offense all year scoring a total of 115 points in just 4 games, averaging just over 28 points a contest.  As good as their offense has been their defense has been lights out.  On the season the defense has only given up a grand total of 29 point in 4 games.  That's a little more than 7 points a game, that's hard to do in video games let along real life football. 


Cloudcraft has been really good for the most part of the season.  They currently stand at 4-2 on the season.  On the offensive side of the ball they have managed to score a total of 129 points while on defense they have given up 69 points on the year.  They have played a mixture of varsity teams and also some JV teams from bigger schools around the state.  Cloudcraft does feature one of the top players in the small school ranks in sophomore stud Ben Faust.  Faust will be a player to watch in 2A for a long time to come.


This is a hard one to figure out.  They both have good records, they also have a common opponent in Fort Sumner.  Santa Rosa beat them pretty good while Cloudcraft came up short.  We'll take Santa Rosa and that great defense 21-10.
