LA, Goddard square off in quarters

-A A +A

Baseball > Teams will play in Rio Rancho Thursday

By Mike Cote

The Class 4A baseball tournament gets going again Thursday, and the Los Alamos Hilltoppers are right in the thick of things.
Los Alamos will make its second consecutive trip to the quarterfinal round Thursday when it faces the Goddard Rockets. The two teams will meet at 1 p.m. at Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho.
This will be a big test for the Hilltoppers, the No. 7 seed in the tournament. Goddard is the No. 2 seed and had a very good argument, based on its 2014 outcome for the No. 1 seed.
However, if Los Alamos slips past Goddard, it will face either St. Pius X or Farmington in the semifinal round, a winnable game for the Hilltoppers regardless of which team they face.
The trick, however, will be getting past the Rockets.
Goddard ended the regular season with a Class 4A-best record of 22-4. Of its four losses on the season, three were to Class 5A teams and its only loss to a team came in late March against St. Pius X, the No. 3 seed in the 4A tournament.
As expected, the Rockets rolled through their first round series with Santa Teresa. The Rockets outscored Santa Teresa’s Warriors 19-1 in two games Friday and Saturday to advance to Thursday’s quarterfinal.
