Girls soccer: LA tops Rams, falls to Bulldawgs

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team split its final two contests of this weekend’s Albuquerque Academy Invitational tournament.

Los Alamos played a pair of games Saturday at the tournament, hosted by the Academy Chargers. Friday afternoon’s scheduled game against Rio Rancho was postponed due to lightning less than a minute in.

In Saturday’s makeup contest — the halves of which were shortened from the usual 40 minutes to 30 minutes to accommodate all the tournament’s postponements — the Hilltoppers scored in the first half against Rio Rancho’s Rams and made that goal stand up a 1-0 victory.

In the tournament’s fifth-place contest Saturday afternoon, Las Cruces returned the favor, making a first half goal stand up to win 1-0.

Despite the loss, which knocked Los Alamos down to sixth place in the eight-team tournament, Hilltopper head coach Jiri Kubicek said he was far happier with Saturday’s effort than he was with Thursday’s opening round, in which Los Alamos was doubled-up by Sandia Prep, 4-2, knocking the Hilltoppers into the consolation bracket.

“We had a good talk with the kids after the loss to Sandia Prep,” Kubicek said. “We came to play (Saturday). We were ready and we didn’t give them any chances.”
