Boys soccer: LA drops Monday’s game to Horsemen

-A A +A

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team couldn’t follow up on its big win at the Louie Cernicek Invitational this weekend.
The Hilltoppers (4-2) fell to the St. Michael’s Horsemen on the road Monday by a final of 4-3.
Los Alamos, coming off three victories in two days at the Cernicek tournament — the team’s first win in that tournament since 2004 — didn’t have much in the tank Monday when squaring off against the Horsemen, who were plenty amped up to see them.
“We can’t overlook anybody, especially people who are familiar with our program,” Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. “We’ve got a big target on our backs and we’re such a big game for a lot of people. “We’ve got to be mentally ready for everybody we step out on the field for.”
Complicating the matter Monday was the fact that Los Alamos scored within the first 30 seconds of kickoff, a goal which Gartz said actually contributed to a letdown.
St. Mike’s, a very solid Class AAA program that very much enjoys knocking Los Alamos off when it gets the chance, came back with a pair of goals later in the opening half to take a 2-1 lead.
