JACONA — If only they were all this easy.
While it would’ve been tough for Class A Cimarron to pull off an upset over the third-ranked Class AAAA team in the state, Los Alamos, during their game Thursday, falling behind 21-2 after the first quarter wasn’t going to make the quest any easier.
The Hilltoppers held Cimarron’s Rams without a field goal for more than 11 minutes to start the contest while doing virtually anything and everything they wanted on the other end of the floor to win by a final of 73-31.
Thursday’s meeting between the two teams came in the first round of the Ben Lujan Invitational. The ninth-annual tournament, hosted by the Pojoaque Elks, will continue through Saturday.
Los Alamos moves on in the championship bracket and will play at 8:15 p.m. tonight against the winner of the late game, Pojoaque and Dulce. The outcome of that contest wasn’t known as of Thursday night, but Pojoaque went into Thursday’s game as a heavy favorite.
In other tournament first round games, Socorro knocked off Peñasco 73-63 and Grants pulled off a mild upset against Mesa Vista, winning 61-57. Socorro and Grants meet in the other tournament semifinal game at 7 p.m. tonight.
