LA drops season opener to Bosque

-A A +A
By The Staff

In time, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team may turn some heads. But the 2014 season opener was not one of those times.
Los Alamos dropped its season opener at Sullivan Field Tuesday to the Bosque School Bobcats. The Bobcats, a very tough program, picked up a goal in each half and, after an initial offensive push by the Hilltoppers, limited the home team’s chances in a 2-0 victory.
There was nothing alarming about Tuesday’s loss, Hilltopper head coach Evan Gartz said, but there wasn’t much that impressed him, either.
“It was an OK game,” he said. “Their goals were mistakes of ours. Those were things that are correctable, which is nice.”
Gartz said a defensive breakdown led to the first Bobcat goal, something which is inclined to happen to teams early in the season. The second goal, however, was a little less acceptable.
In the second half, Bosque was awarded a corner kick. The kick sailed over the heads of three Hilltopper players and to the far post, where it was knocked in.
Los Alamos had a notable height advantage over the Bobcats (2-0), but the Bobcats were consistently beating the Hilltoppers to balls in the air, something that displeased Gartz.
