Game Preview: Clovis vs. La Cueva

Very interesting game with the winner getting one game closer to the state title game.

Clovis vs. La Cueva

Both of these storied programs are looking to move on.

Clovis has losses on the season but two of their wins were really impressive. The fact that they beat Cibola and than on national TV beat up on Artesia really made the rest of the state take notice of the talent level. They played against a schedule that is as hard as anyone in the state. The beat playoff teams like Eldorado, Cibola, Rio Rancho and Artesia. They lost three times to Mayfield, Goddard and to La Cueva. As a matter of fact La Cueva won by 5 26-21 in that game.

La Cueva comes into this game with only three losses on the season as well. They lost to Cibola, Mayfield and Eldorado. But they also played playoff teams as well beating Clovis, St. Pius and Valley. They also won last week in the first round of the playoffs, beating up on Alamogordo 34-13.

On paper this game looks like it could be a real good game. But for some reason we really like Clovis even though they lost to La Cueva earlier in the year. We'll take Clovis 24-10.
