If Los Alamos’ girls soccer team wants to make a run in the state Class AAAA playoffs, head coach Jiri Kubicek said it will need to make more plays than it did Tuesday.
Los Alamos had plenty of chances to take a lead in the first half, then another two chances to get back into the game late in the second half. But for all those chance, the Hilltoppers came up empty.
Albuquerque Academy picked up a big win at home over the Hilltoppers Tuesday, winning an important nondistrict Class AAAA game 2-0. Academy’s Chargers picked up goals in each half to earn the victory.
The Hilltoppers failed to not only pick up an edge against one of AAAA’s top contenders but couldn’t earn the measure of revenge they were seeking for their loss to the Chargers in the 2007 playoffs.
“We beat ourselves,” Kubicek said. “The first half we totally dominated…we just couldn’t put it in. Defensively, we were playing on our heels and we couldn’t contain their strikers.”
Academy scored late in the first half on a shot from 25 yards out that sailed over the outstretched arms of goalkeeper Jenny Tumas.
Going into Tuesday’s game, Tumas had allowed just one goal on the season.
