Nebraska Kearney

I didn’t make it to the first match of the 2006 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference volleyball championship tournament, but third seed Metro State defeated No. 6 Fort Lewis College in five games, 22-30, 30-26, 28-30, 30-28, 15-11.

UC-Colorado Springs

The second match of the afternoon featured Nebraska-Kearney, the No. 2 seed, and No. 7 UC-Colorado Springs. The Lopers handily defeated the Mountain Lions in three games, 30-24, 30-21 and 30-17.

More photos and an update on the Mesa State/Regis University and WNMU/CSU-Pueblo games later tonight.

Western New Mexico rushed for 287 yards and scored a 24-0 victory over Western State today at Mountaineer Bowl.

Western New Mexico improved to 3-1 overall and 2-1 in RMAC play. Western State fell to 1-3 overall and 1-1 in conference.

Dakota Woodard led the Mustangs with 14 rushes for 105 yards, while Lateef Azziz rushed 16 times for 78 yards and Rod Windsor went eight times for 55 yards.

As a team, Western New Mexico gained 396 yards of total offense.

After a missed Western State field goal attempt, Western New Mexico jumped on the board with a 15-yard pass from Windsor to Josh Gill. The Mustangs held a 10-0 lead at the half on a 27-yard field goal.

Windsor opened the scoring in the second half with a 27-yard run and then Gill and Windsor connected again for a score – this time from 61 yards out.

I hate to be so cheesy with the title, but, well, it is that time of year.

Cobre High School vs. Silver High School
The Silver and Cobre high school football teams met on Friday night in their annual Red-Blue matchup. Silver came away with the win, but the game was a good one, and that’s what counts. A small sample of the photos I shot during the game are below (click for larger versions).

Western also had their home opener this weekend. They fell to Fort Lewis (which was ranked No. 1 in the conference) though, I daresay, they did quite well despite some turnovers. When they get the first-game jitters out, they’ll be ready to kick some tail. As before, click the photos below for larger versions.
