After a tough week on many levels, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team fell to the Albuquerque Academy Chargers 18-2 Friday afternoon.
Los Alamos, which had to plug several new players in several key positions on both sides of the ball this week, made some plays Friday against the Class AAA Chargers, but not enough of them.
“We just didn’t have the speed to get outside,” Los Alamos head coach Bob Scott said. “Had we had a couple of extra people (for the game), it would’ve been different.”
Among those missing was Raul Rodriguez, Los Alamos’ star running back, who injured his ankle during practice this week.
Los Alamos had to fill holes not only for Rodriguez, but at most of their skill offensive positions, as well as defensive back positions.
Junior Ryan Schleft, the backup quarterback, got his first start of the season Friday. Scott said Schleft generally ran the offense well.
When Los Alamos tried to pass against Academy, however, Schleft was under some heavy pressure from the Charger defense all afternoon long.
