Friday will be the first chance of the 2013 season for the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team to show off in front of the home crowd.
But it has a tall order to fill this week.
Los Alamos will take on the Farmington Scorpions Friday at Sullivan Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
The Scorpions crushed the Gallup Bengals on the road last week, 48-0, to start their 2013 season.
Farmington, which has thumped Los Alamos in their recent meetings, including a 28-0 victory last season in the Four Corners, has some size upfront, with six linemen listed near or above the 240-pound mark. The Farmington offensive line had an impressive showing against Gallup, helping the Scorpions to four first-half touchdowns.
But Los Alamos should enter Friday’s game with some momentum coming off a big season-opening win over the Pojoaque Valley Elks.
The Hilltoppers had 448 yards total offense and scored five offensive touchdowns as they topped the Elks 43-14. The game’s outcome was still somewhat in doubt until the fourth quarter, but the Hilltoppers scored three times, including a 64-yard pick-6 by defensive back Simon Heath, to roll to the win.
Los Alamos’ win over Pojoaque Valley didn’t seem to impress anyone at MaxPreps, however.
