Nukes finish second in Las Cruces
The Los Alamos Nukes rugby club finished second in a 7s tournament in Las Cruces during the weekend of Aug. 30.
The Nukes won a pair of games in the round robin tournament, topping Mayfield and Las Cruces, but fell twice to tournament winner El Paso, Texas.
On the weekend, Derek Selvage had five tries for the Nukes, while Mateo Cardiel had three tries and Clint Adams added a pair of tries. Also scoring for the Nukes were Cyrus Martin with one try and Diego Cardiel — who recently completed U.S. Army basic training at Fort Jackson, S.C. — had one try and several conversions on the weekend.
Los Alamos topped Mayfield 24-17 and Las Cruces 39-5. El Paso’s Spartans, however, were the dominant force in the tournament, dropping Los Alamos 17-12 in their first meeting of the weekend and 14-5 in the tournament championship game.
The Nukes will return to action this January. Anyone interested in playing can contact coach Demetrio Cardiel at 505-250-8005.
