Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams will be at home this weekend for the first round of the Class 4A playoffs, and both teams have a similar road to get to the state championship.
Both Los Alamos’ teams were awarded No. 6 seeds in the 4A postseason, which starts this weekend at home sites around the state. The tournament continues Nov. 7 and goes through Nov. 9 when the venue shifts to the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex near Volcano Vista High School.
The Hilltoppers will have back-to-back first round games Saturday at Sullivan Field. The Hilltopper boys will face No. 11 seed Centennial High School, a new school in Las Cruces, at 11 a.m., after which the Hilltopper girls will take on Piedra Vista at 1 p.m.
Seeds 5-8 will host first round games this weekend against seeds 9-12. The top four seeds in 4A have a bye into the Nov. 7 quarterfinal round.
Should Los Alamos’ girls win, they would face third-seeded Aztec in the quarterfinals, while a potential match-up for them in the semifinals would be second-seeded Farmington.
“We’re on a mission against all the Farmington teams,” Los Alamos head coach Jiri Kubicek said, noting the other top-seeded teams, No. 1 overall St. Pius X and No. 4 Albuquerque Academy, are on the opposite end of the bracket.
