The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team reclaimed the North Star Trophy by upsetting the Taos Ice Tigers Saturday.
The Hilltoppers scored two unanswered goals in the third period to upend the Ice Tigers 5-3 at Taos. A pair of underclassmen, sophomore Tyler Thorn and freshman Hudson Davenhall tallied goals in the final period to lift the Hilltoppers to the win.
Los Alamos and Taos are longstanding rivals in the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League and play one another each year for the North Star Trophy.
Davenhall, the leading scorer for the Hilltoppers this season, picked up his second hat trick of the year with his third-period goal, which came with just five seconds remaining in regulation. For the season, Davenhall has recorded 11 goals.
Los Alamos trailed 2-1 in the second period before Dennis Trujillo connected on a slap shot from the blue line that went through the 5-hole of Taos goaltender Valere Pezzella.
With the score tied at 3-3, Thorn scored what would be the game-winner midway through.
In goal, Bryce Templeton faced 32 shots in the first two periods, allowing just the three Taos goals. The defense shut out Taos in the third period.
