Girls soccer: ’Toppers pick up fourth win in four years over Chargers

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team is on a hot streak and the Albuquerque Academy Chargers found out the hard way Tuesday.
Los Alamos got off to a slow start in its big Class 4A contest with the Chargers Tuesday in Albuquerque, but got things cranked up by the end of the first half. That momentum carried into the second half as Los Alamos scored two unanswered goals to win 2-0.
Hilltopper superstar forward Amy Neal tallied both goals, one off a corner kick and the other on a penalty kick conversion as her team picked up a big win over the defending Class 4A champs.
“The first half we played sluggish,” said Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek. “We came out of the first half pretty good, but we talked to the girls at halftime and told them we needed to be more physical. We dominated the second half.”
Los Alamos, off its win last weekend in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational, where it topped three high-quality opponents including the No. 1-ranked team in the state, Las Cruces, was battling through fatigue early in the contest — the Hilltoppers were playing their fourth game in five days — but kept the potent Charger offense off the scoreboard throughout.
