Girls soccer: Movshovich has a goal and an assist for ’Toppers

By Mike Cote

Heading into the 2011 season, one of the big questions looming over the Los Alamos Hillltopper girls soccer team was whether it would be able to generate goals consistently.
For the opening week of the season, anyway, that question was answered definitively.
Los Alamos scored a pair of goals early in the first half and tacked on two more in the second half to drop its toughest opponent to date, the Farmington Scorpions, 4-2 Saturday afternoon at Dara Jones Field in White Rock.
The Hilltoppers finished the week a perfect 3-0 and put 22 balls into the onion bag against three Class 4A teams.
“I think we’re gelling a lot,” said Los Alamos forward Naomi Movshovich, who finished with a first half goal along with an assist on the clinching goal of the game. “There are a lot of give-and-gos. That has a lot to do with the talent of our players. If you know how to pass, you’ve got a good team.”
Amy Neal, who has been hot as a pistol during the early part of the season, had a goal in each half, including a 61st minute goal to put Los Alamos up 3-1. Neal also crushed a 1-on-1 chance in the first half that clanged off the left post, just missing out on her third hat trick of 2011.
