The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team took a big black eye in its fight to stay alive for a possible district regular season championship Friday night.
The Hilltoppers got down by as many as 12 points in the third quarter of Friday’s game at Bernalillo. The Hilltoppers made a furious comeback to open the fourth quarter and actually tied the score, but a big 7-point rally, two of those points coming on a strange technical foul call, gave Bernalillo a 50-48 upset victory.
With that loss, Los Alamos now slips to 2-3 on the District 2-4A season and 10-12 overall.
Interestingly, Los Alamos didn’t lose any ground to district leader Santa Fe, which was itself upset by Española Valley Friday night as well.
The Sundevils hit a buzzer-beating shot to stun the Demons 48-47.
Still, the Hilltoppers are two full games behind both Santa Fe and Española Valley with three games to play and must play both this week, including facing Española Valley on the road.
As has often been the case in many district games this season, one quarter all but doomed Los Alamos against Bernalillo (7-16, 2-3 in 2-4A), in this case, it was the second quarter. Los Alamos was limited to just three points in that period and trailed by 7 heading into the break.
