FARMINGTON — Multiple area football teams keep on winning and have maintained good standing in the latest New Mexico Overtime Sports Center coaches’ polls.

Piedra Vista (No. 4 in Class 5A), Bloomfield (No. 5 in 4A), Aztec (No. 8 in 4A) and Newcomb (No. 8 in 2A) are ranked yet again.

Bloomfield and Newcomb both remain unbeaten entering Week 4. 

PV has won back-to-back games behind stout defense. Aztec is struggling on on both sides of the ball and has dropped back-to-back games, but has already faced tough competition in Clovis and Taos.

Meanwhile, Farmington moved up to No. 10 in the 5A poll after securing its first win of 2018 last Friday at Del Norte.

Kirtland Central fell out of the top 10 in the 4A poll after its loss last Saturday at St. Pius, remaining winless on the year.
