The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team came out of the weekend with a split against its District 1-4A opponents.
The rubber match against District 1 will be Wednesday against the No. 1-ranked team in the state.
It’s become something of a tradition for the Hilltoppers to take on District 1 schools — which are in the Farmington area — right before winter break and such is the case this year. The Hilltoppers fell to the Piedra Vista Panthers at Griffith Gymnasium Friday night, but were able to bounce back Saturday against the Aztec Tigers.
Los Alamos struggled in both contests, however, but was able to move the ball inside effectively against Aztec and set itself up with easy shots to take a 57-29 victory at home.
Friday, both the Hilltoppers and Panthers played shabbily, but the Hilltoppers’ lack of offense, particularly in the second and fourth quarters, did them in.
Piedra Vista forced 11 turnovers in the second quarter while Los Alamos managed just one field goal, as it took control of the game going into the locker room. Piedra Vista would prevail 41-28.
