In the first of their two meetings this season between a pair of rivals, the Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team overwhelmed the Taos Tigers 18-2 and retained the North Star trophy Friday night.
Amazingly, 10 different players scored goals during Friday night’s game at Los Alamos County Ice Rink, including four goals by Dylan Schreiber, three by Ben Havemann and two each by Nick White, Zach Mang and Dylan Harwell.
Taos was barraged with 50 Los Alamos shots, Los Alamos goal Kyle Lupenski only faced 17.
Los Alamos opened the scoring early with a goal by Ben Havemann, then followed that up with seven more goals in the period to take an 8-0 lead at the first intermission.
Taos was no match for the offensive-minded Hilltoppers, as they continued to pepper the Taos goal.
Some new names appeared in the scoring column as the coaches used the next two periods to experiment with the lines. John Baca, Nathan Sharp, Oliver Funsten and Tony Crandall all scored goals for the Hilltoppers.
Further rearranging lead to defensemen moving into forward positions. Schreiber, Harwell and White took advantage of their opportunity to turn in multi-goal games.
Friday’s game ended with a Teddy Bear Toss and the players of both teams were showered with Teddy Bears.
