Football: LA has chances, but miscues prove costly

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

FARMINGTON — It could’ve been worse, but it could’ve been better, too.
On its first road trip of the 2010 season and the first road trip in the career of head coach Garett Williams, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team had a tall order, taking on the fifth-ranked team in Class AAAA, the Farmington Scorpions.
The Scorpions, who had a mammoth offensive and defensive line, controlled the point of attack for much of the game, and cruised in the second half to a 41-12 victory at Hutchison Stadium.
The final score was somewhat deceptive, however. While Farmington was the superior team Friday night, a few plays — none of which went Los Alamos’ way — could’ve made the game considerably more interesting.
One series in particular could’ve tightened up the final score quite a bit. Los Alamos caught perhaps its only real break of the game on a fourth down play late in the first half. Farmington was flagged pre-snap for unsportsmanlike conduct — the referee, further away from the line of scrimmage than anyone on the field other than the punt returner, threw the flag — giving Los Alamos a first down at midfield.
