I finished the first week of the prep football season with Mayfield hosting Hobbs on Saturday afternoon. The Eagles/Trojans game showcased two high-powered offenses and in spite of all the penalties, both teams managed to light up the scoreboard.
The second night of Las Cruces football paired local teams Centennial and Oñate in their first-ever meeting. Although a class lower than the 6A Knights, the 5A Hawks put on a clinic in all phases of the game.
