Statement Win!!!

Shane Smith and his teammates proved they are a legit title contender with a big win over a talented La Cueva squad. That win sets up a huge game next week against Mayfield.

The rest of the state better take notice because Eldorado has the talent to make a serious run at a state title.  With a big statement win over a well respected La Cueva team, Eldorado proved they are in the same category as Las Cruces and Mayfield in the quest for a state title.

We all new that Eldorado was talented but, what is so different about this win is how they dominated the game.  40-7 is a dominant win and a win that makes the rest of the state take a step back to realize how good and talented this squad is.  Whenever a defense can hold down an offense that has the skill players La Cueva features you know you are talking about a team that can flat out play.  The other thing that people are forgetting to mention is just how tough a schedule this team has played to this point.  They have knocked off Valley, Clovis and Cibola now they win big over La Cueva.

What this win does is give the Eagles even more confidence for their huge showdown with our #2 ranked team in 5A and the defending state champion Mayfield Trojans.  Mayfield is the class team in 5A and have been for a long time now.  If Eldorado is truly going to be a team that will challenge for the state title, you have to prove it against Mayfield.
