Already sitting two games down in District 2-4A, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team knew something had to happen in a hurry Saturday.
Fortunately for the Hilltoppers, something did.
Los Alamos bounced back after dropping the first game of a big early doubleheader against the Santa Fe Demons at Overlook Park. The Demons won a big 8-2 victory in game one, but Los Alamos jumped out to a big lead early and held on through a rough fifth inning to win 11-6.
Earning the split was a big deal for Los Alamos, which could’ve fallen behind three games to the early district leaders, a tough hole to climb out of even with nine games remaining on the schedule.
“For us to have a chance in the district this year, we couldn’t get swept,” Hilltopper manager Roger Anaya said. “We were going to have to hit them hard and take the lead early (in game two).”
Los Alamos did just that, scoring five runs in the bottom of the first.
Emilee Jones had a 2-run home run in the inning and Krysta Salazar and Alyssa Mojica both came through with RBI hits off game one winning pitcher Alex Russell, who also threw game two for the Demons.
