Just when the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls varsity basketball team appeared to have Wednesday’s game sewn up, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers made it interesting.With 6:24 to play, the Hilltoppers moved ahead by nine points on a bucket from Taylor Ealey, their biggest lead of the game.But through plain old skullduggery down low, Academy climbed back into the game, cutting the Hilltopper lead to three on two occasions late in the contest. Academy had a pair of late 3-point chances, one of which just rimmed out, and Los Alamos held on for a 35-32 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.Wednesday’s game was the season opener for Los Alamos, the first of three quick contests to open the season.Los Alamos was winded and dragging toward the end of the game, but it won’t get much of a chance to rest, as it goes back to action tonight against the Del Norte Knights.“We got a little tired,” Hilltopper point guard Tyree Richins said after the contest. “We were just tired, but not much else. We just needed to keep moving on offense.
