The NM Brujos continued to show improvement last Saturday, but were ultimately undone by a slew of injuries and the speed of the visiting Santa Fe Santos. The Brujos briefly took a 7-5 lead in the first half with a score and conversion by Andrew Esquibel. But three straight late first half scores by Santa Fe would prove to be too much for the Brujos to overcome. A late first half try by Kevin Tabor, and a rousing second half try by Mike Judy, would be the Brujos last two scores of the match as the Santos took a 36 - 17 win back north with them.
The Brujos will try and end their 2018 spring regular season on a high note as they take on cross city rivals The Albuquerque Aardvarks on April 7th at Balloon Fiesta Park.
Don't forget the 20th annual Rio Grande Celtic 7's Rugby Tournament is less than two months away and registration is currently open.
