The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team dropped its opener of the three-day Albuquerque Academy Invitational, falling to an opponent it knows well.
Los Alamos had plenty of chances against the Farmington Scorpions Thursday in Albuquerque, but only made one of those chances count. The Scorpions, meanwhile, got off only 10 shots in the game but scored a pair of goals to win 2-1.
The Hilltoppers (1-4) now slip into the consolation side of the tournament, one of the top regular season tournaments in the state. They will take on the Oñate Knights this afternoon after the Knights took a beating at the hands of the Aztec Tigers Thursday.
Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek his team had no shortage of opportunities to make something happen but simply couldn’t cash in on the offensive end. On defense, there were a couple of breakdowns at inopportune moments that helped the Scorpions get on the board.
“We had many chances, but we beat ourselves, basically,” he said.
Thursday’s game was the second time the teams had faced off in 2013. Los Alamos dropped its opener to Farmington 2-0 at Sullivan Field.
Kubicek said this game was rough-and-tumble throughout, more so than it should have been.
