The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team breezed to victory Friday night at Sullivan Field and is now just one step away from clinching the District 2-4A title.
The Hilltoppers pummeled the Española Valley Sundevils Friday night. The Hilltoppers scored 40 points in the first quarter and closed out the contest at halftime, winning 58-0.
Scoring came early and often for Los Alamos, which picked up its fourth consecutive win Friday in its final 2011 home game. Los Alamos scored a pair of touchdowns just 2:01 into the game then tacked on a third with 7:22 remaining in the opening quarter.
The Hilltoppers, who at 5-4 are now above .500 for the first time since the opening game of the 2010 season, handed the undersized, undermanned Sundevils a shellacking.
The Sundevils, who dressed only 22 players for the contest, including a handful of eighth graders, could get next-to-nothing going on the offensive side and struggled mightily to slow the Hilltoppers down on the defensive side.
For the two quarters of play, Española Valley netted just 24 yards total offense and two offensive first downs — it got a third on a Hilltopper penalty when it punted. Quarterback Mike Aragon completed four passes for 37 yards, but was sacked five times.
