Hockey: LA routs St. Pius X on road Sunday

-A A +A
By Dann Alison

The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team improved to 8-4 on the season as it overwhelmed the winless St. Pius X Sartans in Albuquerque Sunday.  

The win completed the season sweep of St. Pius by Los Alamos.  The Hilltoppers scored 10 goals on 34 shots while completely shutting down the Sartan offense to win 10-0.

Los Alamos earned two hat tricks, two power-play goals, and short-handed score.

The big win came although the Hilltoppers were missing five of their regular first- and second-liners.

However, the team was able to step up and dominate Sunday’s game.  The lines changed up throughout the game and every combination was productive.

Scoring opened early in the first period Sunday. Patrick Raichur scored first at the 9:07 mark of the first period.

Raichur scored another goal just 15 seconds later and the rout was on. There would be two more goals by Oliver Funsten and Marina Meneakis to close out the first period.

The second period saw four more Hilltopper goals. Raichur scored at the 9:35 mark to complete his hat trick.

Later in the period, Kyle Barich-Mooday scored a goal and Chase Havemann and Funsten provided power-play goals, giving Los Alamos a comfortable 8-0 lead heading into the final period.
