LA’s offense, defense come up big vs. Bobcats

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

In 2010, the Bloomfield Bobcats came back from a late deficit with the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team needing just to run out the clock in the fourth quarter.
Friday night, the Hilltoppers found themselves in much the same position, backed up on their 4-yard line and clinging to a 1-point lead.
But on a long sideline route on third down, Bloomfield was flagged for pass interference. Then, three plays later, quarterback Danny Finn scrambled down the right side for a big 7-yard pickup to earn another first down which all but sealed the game for the Hilltoppers.
Los Alamos earned its first win of the season Friday, topping Bloomfield 21-20 at Sullivan Field.
Running back Arnoldo Ortiz said flashes of the 2010 game came back to him as the Hilltoppers were backed up deep in their own territory late.
“We really screwed it up in the end,” Oritz said of last season’s contest, in which Los Alamos led 15-12 with less than two minutes remaining and lost 19-15. “That really got to us in the heart. We showed (Friday) we had a lot of heart.”
