Girls soccer > Lemke finishes with 11 saves but Sandia wins 1-0

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team played even with the Sandia Matadors for virtually the entire way Thursday afternoon.
But with time winding down in regulation, Sandia’s Jassara Baca scored on a corner kick to give the Matadors a 1-0 victory in Albuquerque.
The corner kick came in low and got lost in front of the goal before Baca got it into the net.
“One little mistake on defense and we lost the game,” Hilltopper head coach Jiri Kubicek said. “That was the difference. We played well for 80 minutes except for those last few seconds.”
Sandia (7-3), a respected Class 5A program, kept Hilltopper goalkeeper Kaitlin Lemke busy much of the afternoon, taking 12 shots-on-goal. Lemke was up to the challenge, making 11 saves before the Matadors broke through with the final goal.
Thursday’s contest was a nondistrict tilt for the Hilltoppers (3-8), who opened 2-4A play the day before with a 10-0 win over Bernalillo, picking up that win in about 60 minutes of play.
Against Sandia, however, Los Alamos managed just thee shots-on-goal, all of which were picked up by Sara Gold, who earned the shutout.
