NM Football Friday Week 12 Pt. 3
In this block of the Football Show, we start off with a look at a class 4A battle between Socorro and Moriarty. The Fighting Pintos won that game and also one the first round of the Spirit Stick Playoffs with a huge amount of votes online. Then we have to make a correction as we said on the show that Hope Christian won their game with Taos on Friday night, but that was a bad score that received here at the FFN headquarters. So, it will actually be Taos moving on to the quarters to face off with 2 seed Portales at Greyhound Stadium.
