For the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team to have success down the stretch, it must find consistent offensive production.
It certainly found some against Kirtland Central.
Los Alamos picked up some big chunks of yardage Friday night in its 2012 homecoming contest, taking on the Kirtland Central Broncos, both on the ground and through the air. Los Alamos rolled up 388 yards total offense and scored two touchdowns in the opening quarter to set the tone, rolling to a 34-0 victory at Sullivan Field.
The Hilltoppers took the opening possession of the game and drove 72 yards to paydirt, then Clint Adams blocked a Kirtland Central punt attempt late in the first quarter, setting the Hilltoppers up at the Bronco 13-yard line. Receiver Seth Drop went in one play later on an end around with 1:50 remaining to give the Hilltoppers a 13-0 advantage at the time.
Drop, who had a big game Friday night, said it was important for the Hilltoppers to set the tone early.
“We got that first score in, we were making plays,” Drop said. “Everybody executed. The last couple of games we haven’t executed.”
Prior to the big victory Friday, Los Alamos had been shut out for two straight contests.
