Programming note: ALCS game at 5:30

October 19th, 2013 at 12:02 pm by under Sports

Coverage of Game 6 of the Detroit-Boston American League Championship Series on 2 KASA Fox has moved to 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The change in time came too late for preprinted TV schedule guides, which show coverage of the Tigers and Red Sox beginning at 2 p.m.

The start time was contingent on what happened in Friday night’s National League game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals.  Game 7 of that series would have been held tonight in St. Louis, but since the Cardinals delivered a 9-0 drubbing to take the series, the American League game at Boston’s Fenway Park now moves into the evening slot.

Boston leads the best-of-seven series 3-2.

Sunday September 28, 2013 2 KASA will be airing the Broncos/Eagles game.

Conflicts arise each year between airing Bronco’s and Cowboy’s games and due to a fairly evenly fan split between the two teams, we try and rotate between which game will air on KRQE News 13 and 2 KASA.

Sunday will be the only conflict this season.


Lobo linemen suspended

September 17th, 2013 at 2:52 pm by under Sports

A pair of Lobo sophomore defensive lineman have been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team. Head Coach Bob Davie did not specify what caused him to suspend Gerron Borne and Paytron Hightower. Davie did release a statement saying, “Unfortunately, it was the right thing to do. A lot of times, the right thing to do is not the easy thing to do, and that was certainly the case with this situation.” The Lobos are off this week and will resume play by hosting UNLV in their Mountain West opener September 28th.


What will Kasey Carrier do for an encore?

September 10th, 2013 at 7:32 pm by under Sports

He currently leads the nation in rushing. Kasey Carrier jumped to the front of the line while leading his University of New Mexico Lobos to a win over the Utep Miners Saturday. Carrier’s 291 yards broke a Mountain West Conference record for a single game. His 41 attempts tied a league record held by former Lobo Rodney Ferguson. When asked how he felt a day after 41 attempts carrier said, “you don’t want to know.” That is a lot of carries for a guy who loves the game so much he didn’t even realized he was on pace for nearly 300 yards. He also didn’t realize he had 41 carries until the game was over. When asked what he will do for an encore Carrier said, “I will do me.” Carrier has always been the quiet and humble back who just works hard. After a monster season of rushing last year, Carrier has picked up where he left off. His vision on the field, when making cuts, has been tremendous. After rushing for more than 14 hundred yards last season Carrier might find himself breaking his own single season school record in 2013. If it happens, he probably want notice until someone tells him. While the records are nice, it’s not his main priority. All Carrier wants to do is win football games. Not bad for a guy who wasn’t even the first or second choice in the very recent past.
