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

Raton Shuts Out Questa To Go 4-0

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media –

The Questa Wildcats trod into the jungle Friday night, September 15th for a 2017 homecoming game for Raton that didn’t go the full four quarters as Raton scores 48 points in the first half and ties the ribbon on the game just after halftime with a 4 yard scamper by Rafael Maso to make it a 54-0 final score.

The three aspects of a football team, defense, offense and special teams, all scored in the Raton effort to take the Tigers to 4-0. Raton’s defense first set the tone with a three and out of the Questa offense on the first series and then the offense began to click with an opening drive for  a TD, cuminating in an 11 yard pass to Ismael Tafoya. Tafoya would also find the endzone quickly again as the Raton defense made Questa punt and Tafoya sprinted up the middle and then broke it outside for a 67 yard return TD. Raton lead 14-0 at the end of the first and then would put the game out of reach for Questa with QB Dustin Segura finding his big tight end Nathaniel Tarbox for a 26 yard score and then Segura used his legs for a 34 yard TD scamper.

After an Aden Vanderwater interception, the Raton offense churned out another quick six with Tristan Gallegos, the 2017 Homecoming King, putting a four yard TD run in his crown.

Back-to-back defensive scores with Aden Vanderwater’s 22 yard Pick Six and Dante Romero’s 55 yard scoop and score closed out the first half onslaught.

With six seniors and seven juniors,  the Questa Wildcats are by no means a young team, but lacked numbers on the 19 man roster and showed signs of inexperience as the Raton defense blew through the line for several sacks on quarterback Noah Crider and holding the running game to very few yards until late in the second quarter. Coach Tori Giacomo started playing many of his younger players in the second quarter where some miss cues allowed for a couple of 12 yard runs by Jonathan Rivera.

Raton’s 12 seniors played their last Homecoming Game for the Tigers and included: Nathaniel Tarbox; Dustin Segura; Tristan Gallegos; Gabe Martinez; Darien Lewis; Christian Snyder; Rafael Maso; Cole Medina; Roy Flores; Brandon Decker; William Holland; and Ethan Martinez

Coach Giacomo didn’t have much to say about the Friday night game and told his team to look forward to the game next Friday with the Pampa Harvesters in Dalhart, Texas. Sports commentator Abe Elliot spoke about the Harvesters noting that they have one player over 270 with two more linemen at 250 lbs and 62 listed on the roster. Coach Giacomo knows he will have to adjust the defense to meet the throwing offense the Harvesters use so often as well as the Raton offense to find ways around the big linemen.

Lady Tigers Swat The Yellowjackettes in Four

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

It took four as Raton’s second game of the match with Clayton Thursday evening seemed to catch the girls in a major slump as they dropped that game 25-16.

Clayton however started the match out on the slow note allowing Raton to take the early lead and run off before ending game one 25-19. Raton created a big lead but slumped a little to allow Clayton to catchup from an 8-point deficit.

In game two of the match Raton simply couldn’t make things gel giving up the point and allowing Clayton to take as much as a 10-point lead in the game. The girls struggled to get the ball to fall in bounds on the spikes while Clayton made it look easy landing the ball in the holes that Raton left open. Game two went to Clayton 25-16.

In game three it was a different story as Raton once again found the rhythm and took off. However partway through the game Raton hit a slump allowing a big lead to dwindle before once again taking control and ending the game at 25-20

Game four saw Raton simply take command of the court and create an early lead that was never really threatened by Clayton with Raton staying up by more than six for most all the game. Raton took the game much like Clayton did game two with a 25-16 win over the Yellowjackettes.

Raton Tigers 3-0 with Win Over Socorro

The Raton Tiger football team will travel many miles for their 2017 season and the trip to take on their nemesis Socorro Warriors seemed a little shorter after a 35-28 win over the 4A opponent on Friday, September 8th.

The Tigers offense opened up holes for quarterback Dustin Segura all night long which allowed the senior to score four rushing TDs. Three of the scores were 10 yards or less, but a third quarter 73 yard scamper was essential for the Tigers to maintain a two touchdown cushion over Socorro, a cushion that was essential as the Warriors made a late charge, scoring two unanswered TDs and recovering an on-side kick, before time ran out.

Raton’s Segura also accounted for an aerial TD with a 45 yard connection with Nathaniel  Tarbox.

With the win, Raton is now 3-0 and will have their Homecoming this Friday, September 15th against the Questa Wildcats.  Kickoff at 7 pm in the Jungle with the broadcast on KRTN FM 93.9 and streamed on Network1Sports.com

Lady Tigers Take Match in Three Saturday

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

The Lady Tigers continued the winning streak over Trinidad as they took the volleyball match in three games Saturday afternoon to add to the victory the boys put in Friday night against Trinidad.

The Raton c-team however dropped both of their games to Trinidad Saturday morning in Tiger Gym as the young team struggled with controlling the ball and getting it over the net.

The JV girls with game experience from the last three or four years of playing together took early leads in each game and held on to wins in both.

The varsity girls took to the court and in game one Raton fell behind but soon gained their rhythm and came back from a four point deficit to tie the game at 14. It went back and fourth from there until Raton finally pulled out in front and went on to win the game. The girls struggled with their spikes over the net sending many out of bounds. The Lady Miners capitalized on that early one but soon they too struggled with the spikes and keeping the ball in bounds.

Game two Raton took an early lead and expanded it but soon hit a snag and allowed the Lady Miners to come back to within a point. It was a struggle as both teams managed to get the first volley past the other. Raton however prevailed and won the second game by six.

Game three once again saw Raton take the quick early lead and stretch it out to as many as six before Trinidad worked back in close with extended volleys. Finally Raton managed to find the groove and took the lead for good to win by four.

Raton Takes Coal Bucket Back in Shut Out Game

By Marty Mayfield

KRTN Multi-Media

Raton’s defense struck quick on the first play of the game when Trinidad fumbled the ball and three plays later the offense punched it over the goal line for six and that would set the tone for the rest of the game as Raton shut out Trinidad 46-0 to take the Coal Bucket back. Coach Tory Giacomo noted after the game it was great to get the bucket back in Raton as the series is now tied at 6 wins apiece and Trinidad had won three in a row up until the Friday night home-opener for the Tigers on September 1st.

Trinidad’s next series went four and out as they turned the ball over on downs, Raton promptly rushed the ball down to the goal line where Richie Acevedo found a hole and crossed the goal line from the two. Aden Vanderwater’s PAT was good and it was a 14-0 ball game.

Trinidad unable to make the plays to move the ball once again turned the ball over on downs but a holding penalty forced Raton into a punting situation. A holding call against Trinidad on the punt put them at their own 10 yard-line. A fumble on the next play recovered by Rafael Maso gave Raton the ball at the 10 where quarterback Dustin Segura scrambled for another Raton six. Vanderwater’s PAT was good and it was a 21-0 game at 8:13 in the second quarter.

Trinidad fumbled on the kickoff and Raton takes over on the 42. Three plays later its a 29 yard pass play to Nathaniel Tarbox for six more. Vanderwater’s PAT is good leaving it a 28-0 game. Trinidad held Raton from scoring and got the ball back with only five seconds left in the half where quarterback Josiah Portenier takes a knee to end the half.

Raton takes the onside kick to start the second half and on a 21 yard pass play from Segura to Tarbox adds six more to the board, with the 2-point try after a mishandled snap fails and leaves it 34-0.

Trinidad suffers a pass interception by Richie Acevedo, and Raton takes over on the 50. Three plays later Segura scrambles over the goal line for another Raton six. Trinidad starts moving the ball as several JV players man the Raton defense but Aden Vanderwater ends that series with a pass interception to begin the fourth quarter. Raton punches the ball in with a 46 yard pass play to Gabe Martinez for another Raton six. Its now a 46-0 game at 6:34 on the fourth quarter continuos running clock.

Trinidad takes the kickoff and Dilan Villa takes the ball to the 50 yard-line. From there Trinidad makes a last ditch effort to score taking the ball down to the 10. An unsportsman like penalty moves the ball to the five but Portenier just couldn’t connect with his receivers to get the ball in as the buzzer sounds to end the Coal Bucket game 46-0.

Raton next travels to Socorro for a tough game there and back to Raton for the Homecoming festivities and a Friday night game with Questa on September 15.
