On Saturday night, the Runners will look to douse the Colorado Inferno (0-3) who are on a 3-game losing streak.

With the impressive 11-8 victory of the team on January 7th against the Amarillo Bombers, New Mexico is making waves in the league with huge success in team chemistry. Players are showing their consistency and drive to win and make a run for the postseason. Runners forward Mehrshad Ahmadi has made it a point to turn the heads of everyone in the league with his incredible tally of 9 goals in just 2 games played.
