• Notables: This is the regular season opener for both teams. The Titans went 13-1 last season and won the Pecos Division of the New Mexico Premier League, while the Cats finished 7-3. The Cats went undefeated at Leon Williams Stadium last season.
• What to expect: Cats coach Paul Lopez said the Titans were a tough matchup last year, and inherited some players when players broke away from the New Mexico Crush.
“They’re the best team in the Albuquerque area, the best team in the state last year. It’s going to be a test for us. From what I hear, they’re pretty loaded.”
