APS, Cleveland football schedules announced

The 2019 high school football season in the metro area will begin Thursday, Aug. 22, with three games in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque Public Schools has released its schedule for this season, and it looks nearly identical to the 2018 schedule with all 13 programs playing the same 10 teams as they did last year, in the exact same order. The difference? Home games last year are road games this year, and vice versa.

One of the minor changes is the opening night slate. Defending Class 6A champion La Cueva vs. Volcano Vista is the featured game on Aug. 22 at Nusenda Community Stadium. The Hawks were a state semifinal team last fall.

Also opening night, Albuquerque High plays Valley at Milne Stadium, and West Mesa faces Eldorado at Wilson Stadium. Everyone else in APS opens on Friday, Aug. 23.

Rio Grande and Albuquerque High were independent last season and will remain independent for the 2019 season. The next two-year scheduling block begins in 2020, when the Ravens and Bulldogs could petition the New Mexico Activities Association to return to a district.

As always, there will be a steady southern presence in the area during the regular season.

Las Cruces is at Manzano and Eldorado the first two weeks at Wilson Stadium. Mayfield goes to West Mesa on Sept. 6. Centennial, the best of the Las Cruces schools a year ago, plays Sandia at Wilson Stadium on Sept. 14.

Carlsbad is at Atrisco Heritage on Sept. 7. Clovis will make trips to the metro area to face Rio Rancho, Eldorado and La Cueva.

Rivalry games of note: Eldorado-La Cueva is a District 2-6A opener on Oct. 4; Volcano Vista meets Cibola on Nov. 1 at Community; and Rio Rancho and Cleveland also will meet on Nov. 1, at Rio Rancho. The regular season ends Saturday, Nov. 2.

Cleveland’s opener is Aug. 23 at home against Oñate. Rio Rancho is home in Week 1 for Centennial.

The playoffs begin Nov. 8-9. This year’s big-school state finals are slated for Nov. 30, the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
