THIS WAY TO THE SEMIFINALS — Bulldog linebacker Blake Pruitt (kneeling with the ball) makes his way off the turf with a fumble recovery as fellow defenders Aaron Flores (84), Jorge Avitia (46), Darian Fernandez (94), Miguel Martinez (47), Colin Flood (42) and Eddie Pando (58) help signal the change of possession during the first quarter of the ‘Dogs’ eventual 47-14 state quarterfinal win over St. Pius Saturday at Bulldog Bowl. With the victory, Artesia advances to next week’s semifinals. They’ll travel to Farmington for a 1 p.m. game against the No. 4 Scorpions. (Brienne Green – Daily Press)
