The Bears advance to State Championship with 42-35 win over Centennial!
La Cueva put together two of the most impressive game winning performances on Saturday to finish the 4th quarter strong. After the Bears Defense forced a Hawks punt, Aiden Armenta took over with 6 1/2 minutes left in the game on the Bears 14 yard line. Senior running back, Gabriel Buie, chewed up yardage and clock scoring from 1 yard out on the 13 play, 86 yard drive, that lasted just under 5 minutes leaving Centennial with only 1:35 to work with. Now up 42-35, the La Cueva D got their chance to step-up. And they performed brilliantly! After a few solid Centennial plays, the Bears pass rush started getting into the backfield. On the final defensive play of the game, the D line broke through, hitting the Hawk quarterback and forcing an errant backward pass that the Bears recovered to seal the victory! Fantastic outing Bears! TAKE STATE!Abq Journal Game Recap
