Girls soccer: LA falls in shootout to Moriarty

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Following the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team’s win at the Farmington Invitational tournament this weekend, head coach Jiri Kubicek said he wasn’t thrilled about his team’s offensive performance.

Despite the victory in that tournament, Kubicek said he was hoping to see more than six goals in the team’s three wins, especially with 20-plus opportunities in each contest.

It didn’t turn out any better for the Hilltoppers Tuesday at Moriarty. Los Alamos had 20 shots and nothing to show for it.

The Pintos held on through regulation and the overtime period, then took advantage of two Hilltopper misses in the first two shootout kick attempts to win 1-0 at Moriarty.

Tuesday’s loss was the first of the season in four outings for the Hilltoppers.

Los Alamos was without two players due to injuries — Maneesha Chitanvis, who is still bothered by a nagging quad problem and Clare Charsley-Groffman, who is having knee problems — and several others players who are trying to fend off illness.

Kubicek said the team will need to have better offensive production down the stretch than it has shown early, but he isn’t planning on hitting the panic button anytime soon, either.
