LA boys fall in first game of year to Bosque School

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team had some defensive issues in the first half of its season opener Tuesday.
Los Alamos allowed a pair of goals to the Bosque School Bobcats in Tuesday’s game in Albuquerque.
Things got a little better in the second half for Los Alamos, but it would still end up on the short end of the contest, 2-1.
Bosque was set up with its first big chance of the game on a Los Alamos handball in the first half. Then, Los Alamos didn’t properly set up its wall on the ensuing free kick, occurring just outside its penalty box, and the Bobcats took advantage.
The Bobcats (1-0), who made the state championship contest in Class A-3A last season, took advantage of another defensive communication later in the half for their second goal.
The Hilltoppers regrouped after halftime, however, and looked much better in the second half, although they would only find the goal once.
“The biggest thing was improvement,” Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. “In the first half, our lack of experience was huge. With only having four or five guys with real varsity experience, it showed, especially in the first half.”
The Hilltoppers debuted several new players Tuesday after losing many key starters to graduation, particularly in the midfield.
