Hockey: Toppers return to LA following losses

-A A +A
By Dann Alison

The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team dropped a pair of games last weekend heading into tonight’s home game against Cibola.

Los Alamos will play the La Cueva Bears tonight at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink. Game time is 7 p.m.

Last weekend was a tough series, battling against weather, tilted ice, and rough times for the goaltender.

In its Jan. 22 contest, the Hilltoppers face the undefeated Santa Fe Blue Jackets.  

Los Alamos goalie Devin Grider was peppered the entire game as the Hilltoppers were outshot 43-10.

Weather-influenced accidents on U.S. 285 between Los Alamos and Santa Fe delayed many of Los Alamos’ team members’ arrival until the third period.

That, coupled with a hot-shooting Blue Jackets team lead to a lopsided 9-0 Santa Fe victory.

Santa Fe opened scoring early against Los Alamos and never looked back. The Hilltoppers found themselves down 5-0 at the end of the first period and 7-0 at the end of the second. By the time the late-arriving Hilltoppers got into the game, the outcome was all but decided.  Another two third period goals by the Blue Jackets closed out the scoring.
