ROSWELL — The Portales Lady Rams beat Goddard in Roswell Thursday night, 49-46.

Kaycee Quick led the Lady Rams with 13 points followed by senior Briana Hernandez with 12.

“We were better defensively than we have been in other games, but Goddard didn’t have the ball handling skills that other teams we’ve played have,” Lady Ram head coach Brenda Gomez said. “I think we’re understanding our defensive philosophy better, but we still have a long way to go.”

The Portales girls are 3-3, and travel to Moriarty tonight.

Portales boys basketball coach Mark Gallegos also announced Thursday afternoon, that the Rams home game against Aztec Saturday will begin at 2 p.m with no junior varsity game preceding it.
