BELEN – While it might be tough to find a lot of good news in a 27-point loss, there were at least some bright spots for the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team Friday night.
Facing one of the top programs in Class 4A in its Homecoming contest, the Hilltoppers were able to move the ball fairly well for a good portion of the night.
Unfortunately, some decent drives for the Hilltoppers didn’t result in any points until the very end when the game was out of reach.
Meanwhile, the heavily-favored Belen Eagles took advantage of some big plays, many of them provided by quarterback Nicholas Kurtz, as they picked up a 35-8 victory at home Friday.
The Eagles, the No. 6-ranked team in 4A, gained 321 yards on the ground, including Kurtz’s 136 yards on just 12 carries. Kurtz had eight rushes of 10 yards or more in the contest as Los Alamos’ defense struggled to contain him.
But Los Alamos, coming off its first win of the season a week earlier over Bloomfield, had one of its better offensive nights of the season.
The offense picked up 239 total yards, including 163 yards in the air.
