FARMINGTON — The Bloomfield boys soccer team picked up its third straight win Saturday afternoon, knocking off Robertson 4-1 at the Bernalillo Soccer Complex.

"We're still fighting the injury bug, and our seniors really stepped up and picked up the pieces today," Bobcats head coach Scott Reid said. "Our defense looked stellar. I like when they play tight together, and that allows us to move the ball up to our offense and attack."

Miguel Pereyra scored two goals for the Bobcats. Edgar Fonseca and Sammy Gutierrez chipped in a goal each in the win.

The Bobcats (4-1) will be back on the field Tuesday, taking on Piedra Vista (0-4) in Farmington.

"Right now, obviously, we're feeling good about ourselves," Reid said. "Today was our third win in a row. We want to keep the momentum going, and we don't want to let up on the gas."

Aztec 10, Robertson 0

Not even lightning could slow down Aztec as the Tigers rolled to a 10-0 win over Robertson (0-2) at the Bernalillo Soccer Complex Saturday afternoon.

"We played well. The biggest problem was the 30-minute lightning delay that we had. It's tough when you're playing well to have that break in the game and then have to go back out, but overall, it was a good game."

Bailey Watkins led the Tigers (3-1) with four goals in the win.

Scales said Aztec found its offensive success by building the attack from the back and using the width of the field to open up scoring lanes.

Scales also praised defenders Brandon Stafford and Dylan Olson for controlling the back line.

The Tigers will travel to Belen on Tuesday to face the Eagles (1-2).

Clovis 2, Farmington 1

Farmington suffered another tough loss at the Los Alamos Invitational, falling to Clovis 2-1 Saturday afternoon.

"The first half started really slow for us. The second half was a little bit better," FHS head coach Byron Farnsworth said. "We found some things out about ourselves. Tactically, we have some things to work on."

Kahlil Stoltzfus scored the goal for the Scorps (1-2).

Farnsworth said his team is going to have to dig deep this season and find a way to produce goals without a true scorer on the team.

FHS will be off until Saturday when the Scorps head to Albuquerque to face Bosque (2-0-1).

"(The) guys need to compete this week to show what direction our team wants to go after a tough first week," Farnsworth said.
