Magdalena teams win Stampede

MAGDALENA -- The Magdalena boys and girls basketball teams both won the Steer Stampede this past weekend.
The boys beat Alamo 63-29, Carrizozo 47-26 and then trailed by 14 to Hot Springs before falling 45-41.
“All the teams had a good experience and it is a good chance to get 3 games in a row early in the season and see where you are at,” Jory Mirabol said. “We were able to see things each day we need to improve on and the boys did a great job working through those things in the three games. I think that our boys worked really hard this weekend and that can make up for a lot of short comings in other areas. If they continue to work hard they have a chance to be a good team.”
In the Alamo game, Magdalena was led by Reg Peralto with 16 and Bryce Milligan with 13. Milligan had 16 and Peralto added 13 against Carrizozo and Daniel Hand had 13 in the win against Hot Springs.
The Magdalena girls rolled through their tournament, beating Alamo 87-19, Menaul 80-26 and Tularosa 47-31 in the finals.
“Tularosa really came out to play,” Magdalena coach Wally Sanchez said. “It was a tough game.”
The two teams meet again this week on Dec. 12 at Magdalena.
The Quemado boys team finished third in the Cliff Roundup, beating Cobre 75-38, losing to Lordsburg 63-61 and beating Animas 85-41 as they improved to 4-2 on the season. The Quemado girls opened their season, losing to Ramah 42-35 and beating Pine Hill 29-26 for its first win of the season.
The Reserve boys and girls teams were both victorious against Temple Baptist with the boys winning 86-30 and the girls winning 41-21.
