LA struggles in homecoming contest Friday

-A A +A

After a solid showing against a very good Class 4A team, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football liked its chances to get back on track heading into Friday’s homecoming game.
Phillip Romero had other plans.
Romero, a halfback on the very potent single wing offense of the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, rushed for 199 yards and two touchdowns, including a 72-yard scamper on the first play from scrimmage in the second half.
The Chargers went on to spoil the Hilltoppers’ homecoming, winning 28-13 at Sullivan Field.
A week earlier, Los Alamos, which had a rough month of September up to that point, played very well against a very tough Belen Eagles squad. The Hilltoppers lost the game 28-14 but actually outscored the Eagles 14-7 in the second half.
Los Alamos (1-5) was hoping that good showing would carry over into Friday’s game against an Academy team which was 4-1 on the season but had played a relatively soft schedule so far.
Instead, the Hilltoppers again spun their wheels on offense, turning the ball over on their first two drives of the night and were shut out in the first half.
Los Alamos wide out Simon Heath was shaking his head after the loss.
