LA can’t slow Scorps’ ground game

Football: Farmington ruins Hilltoppers’ home opener, 41-0

By Mike Cote

The powerful ground attack of the Farmington Scorpions was more than enough to upset the home opener of the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team Friday night.
Los Alamos entertained Farmington Friday night, its first game of 2011 at Sullivan Field and its new, refurbished artificial surface. But neither turf nor the on-and-off showers nor, unfortunately, the Hilltopper defense, could do much to slow the Scorpions, who rolled up 224 yards in the first half, 214 of it coming on the first half.
Farmington scored on three of its opening four possessions and cruised to a 41-0 win over Los Alamos. It was Los Alamos’ second straight shutout loss against an opponent from the Four Corners area.
Hilltopper second-year head coach Garett Williams said he was generally happier with Friday’s showing than he had been a week earlier against Aztec, but there’s still plenty of work to do before the start of the District 2-4A season in less than a month.
“We can’t have turnovers and we can’t have missed tackles,” Williams said. “It was a better effort, but we’ve got to find a way to play inspired football all the time.”
