Football: LA picks up big win in the Valley

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team trounced the Española Valley Sundevils on the road Friday night, but that win wouldn’t be enough to keep the Hilltoppers’ district title hopes alive.

Los Alamos scored 42 unanswered points the first half of Friday night’s game against the Sundevils and allowed only an opening possession Sundevils’ score in the second half to earn the District 2AAAA victory.

But the Hilltoppers’ slim hopes of picking up a second-straight district title were dashed Friday. The first-place Bernalillo Spartans crushed the Taos Tigers 41-8 at Taos Friday night to clinch the 2009 district crown.

Los Alamos fell at Bernalillo Oct. 23 in a tight 14-0 contest. Following last week’s win, Bernalillo needed just one victory in either of its last two contests to claim its first district title since joining 2AAAA in 2005.

The Hilltoppers have just one regular season game remaining, that scheduled for Friday at home against the Capital Jaguars.

The Jaguars, who were idle last week, have identical regular season (3-6) and district (2-1) records as the Hilltoppers.

The winner of Friday’s game will finish in second place in 2AAAA and will be at the mercy of the New Mexico Activities Association’s at-large selection committee.
