The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team got its 2012 season started with a bang Saturday afternoon.
The Hilltoppers scored four goals in the second half of their season opener with the Farmington Scorpions. Freshman Catie McDonald earned the first hat-trick of her prep career and senior Amy Neal scored a pair of goals and assisted McDonald with all three of her goals as the Hilltoppers won in a rout, 6-0 on the road.
Los Alamos, which was much quicker up top than were the Scorpions, fixed itself up with several 1-on-1 scoring opportunities and took advantage.
Due to some absences, the Hilltoppers went into the game playing short-handed — Los Alamos only kept 16 players on its preseason roster — but their sub-varsity call-ups for the game came through against the Scorpions (0-1) under toasty conditions at Hutchison Stadium.
“Some of the JV players stepped up and played very well,” Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek said. “I could not be pleased more with the first game of the season.”
Kubicek said his team’s marking wasn’t where it should be and he would’ve liked to see a better overall contest out of his midfield, but he said he didn’t seen any unfixable problems.
