´Toppers roll over Jaguars, claim District 2-4A crown

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

SANTA FE – It didn’t seem to be a likely scenario in mid-September.
Now, in late October, it has come to pass. Or, more accurately, it has come to rush.
Putting together an impressive run in District 2-4A, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team capped off a perfect district season with a 50-0 clubbing of the Capital Jaguars.
Los Alamos rolled up 303 rushing yards in just one half Friday night at Jaguar Field. Arnoldo Ortiz and Xavier Dennison duplicated their feat of rushing for 100 yards-plus in about a quarter’s worth of work that they pulled off a week earlier, with Dennison going for 112 yards on just four carries in the second quarter and Ortiz earning 109 yards on 11 carries in just a little over 14 minutes of play.
But the story of the night was the Hilltopper defense. The Hilltoppers penetrated the Capital offensive line on nearly every Jaguar offensive snap and had the Jaguars in negative-yardage territory for much of the first half.
On the third play from scrimmage in the second half, Ortiz stepped in front of an attempted sideline pass and ran in from 31 yards to give the Hilltoppers the mercy-rule win.
