The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will close out its regular season against the Capital Jaguars Friday night.
The game the Hilltoppers might be most worried about, however, is happening tonight.
The Hilltoppers (3-6 overall, 2-1 in 2-4A) will be at Capital (2-6, 1-1) for their 2013 finale, trying to keep their hopes alive for a shot at a district title.
Two weeks ago, the Hilltoppers lost at Santa Fe 28-9, putting them in jeopardy of missing out on the district title. Santa Fe, by virtue of its win over Los Alamos, is in the 2-4A driver’s seat and can shut the door on the Hilltoppers’ chances of regaining the district title it lost in 2012 with a win over Bernalillo tonight.
If the Demons lose tonight and the Hilltoppers win Friday, however, things get a little more interesting.
It’s certainly not out of the realm of possibility that the Spartans, who have just one win on the year, can upend the Demons (3-5, 2-0). The Spartans will have momentum on their side after crushing Capital last week 49-7, while the Demons were on the wrong end of a blowout, getting blasted by Moriarty 52-8 in a nondistrict contest.
Even in the best-case scenario for Los Alamos, a lot of things would still have to happen for it to grab a piece of the 2-4A title.
