’Toppers, Elks lock horns tonight

-A A +A

A pair of old foes will meet again tonight at Jacona Gymnasium.
The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team will take on the Pojoaque Elks just down the road. Game time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Los Alamos and Pojoaque are both winding down their nondistrict seasons and are looking to grab some momentum before they head into districts that are considered two of the best in the state.
The Hilltoppers (5-10) dropped a 48-43 decision Tuesday night to St. Pius X, a game Los Alamos trailed by as many as 15 points at the half before cutting the St. Pius edge to just two early in the fourth quarter.
The Elks (6-9), meanwhile, have had an up-and-down season so far, but have won three straight and four of their last five.
Tonight’s game will be broadcast on KRSN AM 1490 and at krsnam1490.com.
