It was a struggle for both teams, to be sure, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team picked up a crucial win Saturday afternoon.
Los Alamos got, and needed, just one score as it took on the Capital Jaguars. David Stroud picked up a goal off an assist from Henry Steinkamp at the 20-minute mark of the first half.
That goal, setup by a nifty dribbling effort by Steinkamp, proved to be the difference in the contest as the Hilltoppers held on for a 1-0 victory at Sullivan Field.
Saturday’s game pitted the No. 5-ranked Hilltoppers against the No. 6-ranked Jaguars, who have put together a stellar nondistrict season.
But the contest was highlighted by some big plays from the Hilltopper defense.
The Hilltopper defensive third had its hands full trying to watch out for some solid performers on the Jaguars’ side, most notably midfielder Hector Oquedo.
But Los Alamos was more than up to the task. Oquedo had a relatively quiet game and Capital, after some close calls during a 20-minute stretch in the first half, didn’t get much going in the second half.
Hilltopper fullback Zeke Zumbro said there was little mystery to what his team was going to have to do Saturday to win.
