Tigers Experience Texas Shut Out At Hands of Pampa Harvesters

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

Raton football traveled to the unfamiliar territory of the Texas Panhandle Friday night, September 22 to tangle with the Pampa Harvesters in Dalhart where there is no mercy rule or running clock to lessen the blow of a 69-0 blowout.

It took Pampa two plays to strike the first blow with a 3-yard TD rush by Keshaun Stewart with only 30 seconds off the clock. The play was setup up by a kickoff return to the Raton 35 followed by a facemask penalty to place the ball on the 20-yardline.  Raton followed with a three and out with Pampa doing the same on their next series.

The laundry on the field became almost constant with each play, as Raton would make 10 yards only to lose most of it on procedure penalties. Pampa’s next scoring drive ended with a 2-yard pass play for six followed by a takeaway by Tucker Bridwell on the kickoff return and scrambling 35 yards for another Harvester TD.

Pampa took the ball into the second quarter with so many yellow flags on both teams and incomplete passes that it’s a wonder they scored on an 11-yard pass from Brandon Steward to Kaleb Caldwell for six, the PAT was good and it was a 28-0 game at 11:53 in the second quarter.

Pampa then scores on a 21-yard pass to Derrius Williams. Joey Hill intercepts a Dustin Segura pass and takes it to the 13-yard line. Pampa moves it down the field and a pass interference call puts the ball on the Raton 2-yardline where Kaleb Caldwell once again punches it through for six. Raton ends the half with a knee.

Second half action begins with Raton kicking off and Pampa taking five plays to go the 41 yards for another six on a pass play from Steward to Michael Villareal for six. The PAT makes it a 48-0 game.

Brenden Baker picks off a Segura pass and takes the ball to the 2-yardline where Braxton Floyd takes it in for six more. The next Pampa score comes on a 14-yard pass play to Villareal. Pampa ends the next Raton series with a pass interception by Bryan Rodriguez then three plays later Raton’s Tristen Gallegos puts a stop to the Harvester drive with a midair grab, but a chop block penalty returns the ball to the Raton 9-yardline. A face mask penalty then gets the ball out of the red zone where another personal foul gets Raton down the field farther than they had been all game. However, the drive ends on downs.

Six plays later Pampa is once again in the end zone on a 6-yard run by Keshawn Stewart with 3:01 left on the 4th quarter clock. It was now a 69-0 game. A fumble recovery by Brenden Baker ended the final Raton series after two plays. Pampa then took a couple of knees to end the game.

Raton will now travel to Albuquerque to take on Albuquerque Academy for a Saturday afternoon game on September 30, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast on FM 93.9 and streamed on Network1Sports.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, SEPT. 20, 2017:

Governor declares Saturday, Sept. 23,
National Hunting and Fishing Day in New Mexico

SANTA FE – Each year hunters and anglers contribute more than $579 million dollars to the state’s economy, providing the funding necessary to manage New Mexico’s wildlife for the benefit of our citizens and future generations.

In honor of the sportsmen and women’s contributions to wildlife conservation, Governor Susana Martinez issued a proclamation, declaring Saturday, Sept. 23 National Hunting and Fishing Day (NHFD) in New Mexico.

Saturday, the department will celebrate NHFD with a day of free fishing in New Mexico. All anglers, residents and nonresidents, may fish free on public waters statewide. No one needs a license or stamp, although bag limits and all other fishing rules apply.

Whether you feel like testing the waters for the first time or you are an old hand at fishing, it’s the perfect time to get out and make a cast or two at lakes and streams across New Mexico.

If you’re looking for a fun family event, the Village of Pecos is having its first annual Fishing Expo from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Monastery Lake, just up the canyon from the village. The free event will feature food, prizes for kids and several exhibitors, including the Department of Game and Fish.

For more information about places to fish on Saturday, check out this week’s Fishing and Stocking Report, available on the department website, www.wildlife.state.nm.us.

What Readers Say about Irene Blea’s Recent Novel

Beneath the Super Moon

It is my honor to endorse Dr. Irene Blea as a friend and colleague. The internationally known author, university educator, community activist, and public speaker shares her lifetime of knowledge in Beneath the Super Moon. We increase both our own knowledge and enjoyment from reading her third Suzanna novel.      

 Ralph Salaz, Ed. D., Educator, Genealogist, Businessman, Humanitarian

Dr. Irene Blea enlightened us about the violence against young women in our communities, about the intricacies, the blood, pain, and deep love we sustain through 500 years of colonization in New Mexico with her novel, Daughters of the West Mesa. In Beneath the Super Moon she informs us about the destructive role of shame upon the individual and the community. The importance of Blea’s work is that she deconstructs the culture showing us that the pride, sometimes hiding truths, can kill us. Irene Blea is, in my mind, the Chicana novelist of these times. I have long awaited this voice. She liberates us with her bravery.
