The Roswell Coyotes (13-5) had three players score in double figures Friday night as they tamed the Deming Wildcats (4-12) 87-50.

“They played the way we should have played,” said Moses “Dude” Burrola Roswell’s head coach.

“I don’t want to be disrespectful to Deming, but I told them, ‘we can’t play down we gotta play our game.’ Just do what we do and I thought we came out in that first half and did what we needed to,” he added.

Burrola said that Deming “came to play.” He said the Wildcats played hard in the first half.

Early in the first period, the game was close as the Wildcats sank nine points from long range.

As the opening period wore on, Roswell’s Tarren Burrola took over.

The junior guard had 17 points in the opening frame and was the leading scorer with 27.

“He had a good first half,” said Dude Burrola. “When the game got away we started to get other people involved. He’s been working hard, he’s mostly known as a 3-point shooter.”

As the first quarter went into high gear, Roswell was starting wear down the visitors leading 31-16 at the end of the period.

The Coyotes were able to keep the Wildcats at bay for the rest of the game outscoring Deming 20-14 in the second period and 20-12 in the third and 16-8 in the final quarter.

“Other guys all stepped in,” Dude Burrola said. “I think a lot of our guys scored and that shows we’re working hard and we’re pretty deep.”

The Coyotes had two other players score in double figures. Senior Logan Eaker had 14 and junior Dylan Tucker had 11.

The Wildcats were led in scoring by sophomore Ramiro Saenz with 13.
