ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The Albuquerque High Bulldogs had all the motivation and fight they needed.
Earlier in the day they got a speech from Super Bowl-winning coach Tony Dungy and desperately wanted to avoid breaking a dubious state record.
Things started off decently. After one quarter, the Bulldogs only trailed by a touchdown and were in position to get a score of their own at the West Mesa 4-yard line.
But by halftime, the Bulldogs' fight wasn't quite enough, and they trailed 28-0 on the way to a 41-20 loss to the West Mesa Mustangs. That's AHS' 38th straight loss, continuing a streak that goes back to 2010 and breaking the old record once held by Santa Fe High.
The loss is an improvement from AHS' previous performances. They've been shut out six times so far this year and were coming off of a 53-0 loss to Atrisco Heritage Academy. On Thursday, they outscored West Mesa in the second half.
If AHS wants a win this year, they'll have one more chance to do it. Their opponent is 1-7 Rio Grande in the season finale.
