ALBUQUERQUE – The Los Alamos Hilltoppers cut the Los Lunas Tigers' lead down to 7 with 1:44 remaining Tuesday afternoon but could not whittle the lead down any further.

Los Lunas topped the Hilltoppers 57-44, knocking the Hilltoppers out of the 4A tournament.

Erin Kirk hit a tough driving shot in the paint to cut the Los Lunas lead down to 48-41 and the Hilltoppers had chances to cut the lead down beneath 7, but couldn't convert several open shots.
