Football: ’Toppers prevailed in wild contest last year

By Mike Cote

It’s the single biggest game of the year for both squads.
If either the Los Alamos Hilltopper or Santa Fe Demon football teams have aspirations to earn the District 2-4A title, they will have to pick up a victory over the other Friday night.
Los Alamos will host Santa Fe at 7 p.m. Friday. The winner will have clear sailing to the district championship, while the loser will likely be shut out from the 2012 playoffs completely.
The Hilltoppers opened the 2-4A season with a big 34-0 win over the Bernalillo Spartans last week in Bernalillo.
In last week’s game, Los Alamos faced a very good running quarterback in Ralf Olguin.
This week, Los Alamos will face the best running quarterback and one of the top all-around athletes the district has to offer, Jordan Booth-Homer.
Booth-Homer is averaging better than 4 yards a carry and has 6 rushing touchdowns.
If that was all Santa Fe’s offense featured, things would be simple for the Hilltopper defense, but Santa Fe also sports one of the district’s best running backs, Anthony Abeyta. Abeyta, a 170-pound senior, is on pace for a 1,000-yard season and is averaging nearly 7 yards per carry.
