´Toppers pick up huge district win

-A A +A

Football: LA holds on in wild fourth quarter, team rolls up 315 rushing yards

By Mike Cote

SANTA FE – Things got plenty hairy at the end, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team hung on to win a crucial District 2-4A contest Friday night.
Despite craziness at the end of the contest, the Hilltoppers earned a 30-20 victory Friday night at Ivan Head Stadium and are now just two wins away from their first district title since 2008.
Los Alamos scored four touchdowns, each by four different players, to earn the victory, but Los Alamos had to sweat things out at the end.
“That was quite a relief,” said Hilltopper offensive and defensive lineman Alan Dahl. “In the past few years we’d lose. We lost to Bernalillo. This year, these two games (Bernalillo and Santa Fe) define how we’re going to do and we win both.”
The two teams both came into the game under similar circumstances, having won three of their previous four contests, gutting out one victory and rolling in the other two. There were plenty of other similarities, too, including the style of play and even using similar formations on offense.
The difference came down to execution.
