Upcoming games to watch

Kirtland Central vs. Aztec, 3 p.m. Friday

Aztec’s offense has been deadly throughout district play so far, averaging 14.8 runs scored per game. The Lady Tigers have a favorable chance to stay atop the district standings, given Kirtland’s recent struggles on defense.

Since facing Los Alamos on March 29, KC’s averaged 13.5 runs allowed per game. Despite winning some key games earlier in the season, the Lady Broncos will have to start turning things around in a hurry in this final stretch to jump back into the conversation for the final 4A playoff spot.

Farmington vs. La Cueva, Noon Saturday

The Lady Scorpions scored a combined 23 runs last weekend against West Mesa, and the timing couldn’t be better for them to reignite their offense.

FHS has plenty of momentum getting ready for La Cueva, which has recently struggled on defense. The Lady Bears have averaged 12.3 runs allowed per game since April 9 and have dropped five of their last six games.

The Lady Scorpions should likely secure a spot at state if they can pull off a doubleheader sweep.
