It was the Tigers first home game of the season with a true underdog battle ahead. The Clovis Wildcats, a 6A team with 252 players on their roster would be ready to play. Could our 4A boys hold up? It looked like Clovis traveled with about as many as we had suited out so it was a fair start. Tigers held their ground and fought hard all the way to the 4th quarter. In spite of many tough calls and a field riddled with yellow flags, we were down by two at the half (10-12) and only down by one (20-21) coming into the fourth. I don't know if we simply gassed out or if Clovis held back until the end but either way they hit us with a strong defensive game taking one turnover after another. Wildcats gained three touchdowns on us while Tigers game held at a standstill. The final score was 49-20 with Clovis taking the win. We are now 1-1 with Taos Tigers coming up next.
