The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team bounced back from a slow shooting night to thump the Goddard Rockets Tuesday night.
Taylor Ealey continued her big showing at the Goddard Holiday Classic scoring 12 points as the Hilltoppers downed the host Rockets 52-28 Tuesday.
The tournament was scheduled to conclude today with the Hilltoppers taking on the Ruidoso Warriors. The Warriors actually had to cancel their tournament game Tuesday due to weather conditions and it was still up in the air whether they would show up in Roswell for their game with the Hilltoppers today.
Los Alamos jumped on the struggling Rockets (0-10) early, dropping in 17 points in the first quarter to their 8 points.
“The goal (Tuesday) was to pick up the level of intensity,” Los Alamos head coach Tarah Logan said. “We knew we were going to have to work on our intensity level. We wanted to score and we wanted to give people some playing time...focus on getting a lot of people on the scoreboard.”
Los Alamos held Goddard to just five points in the second quarter and five more in the third quarter to win going away.
