Curry County improved to 5-2 with the victory, including 3-0 in the New Mexico Premier League, while Alamogordo dropped to 1-3 and 1-2.
"It was a good win," Cats coach Paul Lopez said. "Our run game was pretty good. We had (more than 200) yards rushing.
We had an interception (return for a score) at the end of the half. We dropped some (potential) touchdowns."
Benny Madrid scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter for the Cats. Lamont Dixon also rushed for a touchdown.
Quarterback John Props helped Curry County break the game open in the third quarter, throwing touchdown passes of 25 yards to J.J. Gross and 17 yards to Keaton Howell.
Marcus Walker added a touchdown for Curry County, returning a pass interception 65 yards for a score near the end of the first half.
Defensively, Lopez couldn't find much to complain about.
"Quin Culiver played well," Lopez said. "He had a couple of huge hits.
"Defensively, we were lights out again."
The Cats now have an open week before returning to action on April 15 with a 2 p.m. kickoff against the El Paso Raiders at Leon Williams Stadium.
