Santa Fe High 13, Capital 0

What happened: Lots of scoring in a game that was shortened to 40 minutes due to the mercy rule. The Demons (5-3 overall, 4-2 in District 1-5A) got eight combined goals from Jazzi Gonzalez and Haley Ammerman in routing the Jaguars in what amounted to the final game for each team. Neither club received an at-large bid to the Class 5A state tournament.

Standouts: Gonzalez scored five goals and had an assist while Ammerman had three goals and three assists. Freshman Asha Smelser (broken wrist and all) scored twice while classmate Lauren Mudge had a pair of goals. Sonia Goujon had the team’s other goal.

What’s next: Both teams are done for the 2020-21 season.

Santa Fe Prep 4, Monte del Sol 2

What happened: Two teams that originally didn’t plan to have a season played one final match against each other Saturday. The host Blue Griffins (1-3) got their first three goals from Maddie Mena to erase an early 1-0 Dragons lead. Monte del Sol’s Jennifer Madrigal opened the scoring in the first two minutes and closed it with five minutes left in regulation.

Standouts: Mena’s natural hat trick game with goals in the 25th minute, 55th minute and, finally, the 64th. Fio Moore had Prep’s other goal, as well as an assist.

What’s next: Both teams are done for the 2020-21 season.

Boys soccer

Santa Fe High 3, Capital 1

What happened: A tie game late in the first half went the Demons’ way on a pair of penalty kicks by co-captains Jorge Lozano and Kiran Smelser, a pair of seniors who capped their stellar prep careers with Saturday’s contest. Capital got the equalizer early in the second half before Santa Fe High’s late push.

Standouts: Sophomore Max Anderson scored his first career varsity goal, a sign that coach Chris Eadie said is a glimpse at a promising future for Anderson and the rest of the Demons program.

What’s next: Both teams are done for the 2020-21 season.

Girls basketball

Española Valley 60, Capital 36

What happened: The Sundevils (2-0) led from start to finish, scoring the first 17 points of the game and taking a 32-13 lead into halftime. The Jaguars (1-2) scored just four points in the second quarter but finished the game strong despite a comfortable Española margin the entire second half.

Standouts: Capital’s Rebecca Sorensen had a team-high 13 points. The 5-foot-10 senior is averaging a double-double this season with 14.5 points and 12.5 rebounds a game for the Jaguars.

What’s next: Capital plays at home Tuesday against Los Lunas; Española Valley steps up in weight class to play Cleveland on Monday.

Anything on the 2 football games. The amazing seniors that graduated. Lots of coverage on Luke Padilla prior to the season, how did him and the other boys do??

It's like the most popular sport in America has been simply ignored....

I absolutely agree. No preview or coverage on any of the local high school football or basketball seasons. In stead he would rather cover the NBA and UNM Lobos, who very few people in Santa Fe care about. Get on the stick Webber.

I don't think he knows anything about sports.
