The Aztec Tigers traveled to Ruidoso for the first round of state playoffs. Despite a heavily flagged game and many literal slip ups on an all grass field, Aztec left with a 40-19 win over The Warriors, advancing them into the quarter finals where they will face St. Pius in Albuquerque. It looks like the Tigers are working really well together and finding a rhythm. Coach Stienfeldt said "the boys are finding a great balance in the things that they are doing." Regarding the upcoming match against St. Pius, coach remarks "We recognize that we did beat Pius six or eight weeks ago and that's a great confidence piece but our best football wasn't then and our best football still needs to be out in front of us against an improved Pius team... It's a little nugget for us psychologically to know that we won that game but we can't really focus on that too much." The Tigers will play this Saturday at the Nusenda stadium in Albuquerque at 1pm.
