Girls soccer: Theesfeld has big game in goal

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team came back from a 1-0 first half deficit to pick up a 2-1 shootout victory Friday.

Los Alamos bounced back from a less-than-stellar first half to tie the contest in the second half. Then, after a back-and-forth overtime period, Bryce Theesfeld stopped an Eldorado penalty kick, while the Eagles missed two more in a row.

Hilltoppers Cassidy Reeves and Amy Neal converted the final two penalty kick attempts to earn the Hilltoppers their fourth win of the season either in shootout or in overtime.

"The first half, we didn't play very well," Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek said. "We created some corner kicks, but we only had a few chances. We had a good talk at halftime…and the second half was pretty even."

Eldorado scored its goal near the 15-minute mark, the only goal allowed by Theesfeld, who helped keep the Hilltoppers in the contest through the first 40 minutes.

Midway through the second half, Naomi Movshovich scored off an assist from Leslie Guarello to tie the contest and force overtime.

"That was a good win," Kubicek said. "It shows we can play with good schools like (Albuquerque) Academy and St. Pius X. It should help with the rankings."
