Logan storms to 60-0 victory

Undefeated Logan stormed to a 46-0 first-quarter lead at host Cloudcroft en route to a 60-0 victory Thursday in an eight-man football game.

The game ended at halftime due to the mercy rule.

Haden Judd scored five touchdowns for the Longhorns. Devin Kotara added two TDs and Christian Kotara had one.

The Longhorns improved to 6-0 and are ranked fourth in the state in the latest coaches poll.

Cloudcroft fell to 2-3 overall.

“The boys played hard,” Logan coach Dwayne Roberts said. “We’re trying to get things tightened up for (Fort Sumner) next week. The real test will start next week with district play … top four teams are in our district.”

Logan is scheduled to play at Fort Sumner, ranked No. 1 in New Mexico eight-man football in the latest coaches poll, at 7 p.m. Friday. The Foxes (5-1) lost to district rival Melrose 58-50 on Friday.

Thursday’s game at Cloudcroft originally was scheduled for Friday but rescheduled because of a lack of officials.
