ESPAÑOLA — The good news for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team is that its defense is still performing as well as it has all season.
Unfortunately, that was about the only good news to come out of Tuesday night’s game.
The Hilltoppers dropped a big District 2-4A contest to their arch-rival, the Española Valley Sundevils, at Edward Medina Gymnasium. The Hilltoppers managed just three points in the first 10 minutes of the ballgame, although because the Sundevils weren’t exactly lighting up the scoreboard either, the Hilltoppers trailed just 18-11 at the half.
Los Alamos made a push in the third quarter to take the lead heading into the final frame, but Jeremy Romero’s big fourth quarter propelled Española Valley to a 37-33 victory.
“Every team has a stud and we have Jeremy,” Sundevil veteran head coach Richard Martinez said afterward. “He was able to hit some shots for us.”
