The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team had some breakdowns at the beginning and the end of its game Tuesday against the La Cueva Bears, falling at the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex 6-1.
The Bears took advantage of a pair of mistakes early in the contest, taking a quick 2-0 edge. Then, late in the game, the Bears went on a scoring frenzy, picking up three goals in the space of about five minutes to win going away.
Hilltopper head coach Evan Gartz said it was a disappointing way to start the game, but his team picked it up afterwards and played fairly even with the Bears until a late-game mental breakdown.
“We didn’t really make them earn stuff,” Gartz said. “The two goals in the first half were our mistakes, people not marking people. Their second goal was pretty, but those goals were a little embarrassing.”
Los Alamos’ only goal came in the second half. Nick Thoma’s corner kick went to Dallin Parker on the opposite side the goal. Parker headed the goal back into the middle, where Henry Steinkamp put it away.
Parker has picked up his game considerably through the early part of the Hilltoppers’ schedule. Parker scored a pair of goals in a loss to Farmington Sept. 3 and picked up another goal in a win over Cleveland last week.
