The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team picked up another big win in District 2AAAA and is in control heading into the final stretch of its regular season.
The Hilltoppers broke open a close contest with four goals in the second half to knock off the Taos Tigers 5-0 on the road Saturday.
Davis Anson had a pair of goals and Andy Thoma picked up a pair of assists in Saturday’s second half, helping the Hilltoppers to their second shutout win of the season over Taos.
More importantly, Los Alamos ran its 2AAAA record to 5-0 with the victory and, along with its 1-0 win over Capital earlier last week, is in good position to win its fourth straight district title.
Saturday’s win was the seventh in a row for the Hilltoppers (11-4 overall) heading into a big nondistrict contest Tuesday at St. Pius X.
“The last couple of games, we’ve really turned a corner,” Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. “”We’re playing really pretty soccer. Our passing is great. That’s what we’ve wanted to tighten up and we have…That was a quality win for us.”
Los Alamos dominated the contest throughout, despite having just one goal to show for the first half. Taos opted to keep 10 players inside the 18-yard box, which made getting the ball into the net a challenge.
