Santa Fe High 3, Rio Rancho Cleveland 2

What happened: The Demons won third place in the Albuquerque Academy Invite thanks to a bench that had to fill in for several starters who missed the match for a variety of reasons. Coming off the bench was usual starting striker Alex Waggoner, who played a huge role for Santa Fe High in the second half. 

Chris Eadie, the Demons head coach, said the team going 3-1 during the week showed how far it has come this season.

"We proved we can compete with anyone," Eadie said. "We survived the gauntlet."

Top players: Waggoner scored twice in the final 25 minutes, while senior midfielder Mike Wissman had a goal and an assist. Eadie said senior defender Silas Ropp was solid in the back line. 

What's next: Santa Fe High (8-1) takes on Albuquerque Bosque School in Albuquerque on Wednesday.
