Los Alamos finished in fourth place in this weekend’s Louie Cernicek Invitational boys soccer tournament.
Following its initial win over the Goddard Rockets Friday, the Hilltoppers lost two straight to the Roswell Coyotes in the semifinal and the Farmington Scorpions in the third-place game Saturday.
Los Alamos was nipped 2-1 in overtime by the Coyotes — Chris Mesquita’s left-footed blast just inside the far post was the game-winner in the 88th minute for Roswell — then was dropped 2-1 by the Scorpions Saturday evening.
The Hilltoppers have only won their home tournament three times since 2004.
Bosque School, one of the top small-school teams in the state, went on to win the 2014 Cernicek title.
The Bobcats downed the Coyotes 1-0 in Saturday’s championship game.
For Los Alamos (1-3), it has yet to score more than one goal in any game this season. Los Alamos is scheduled to play St. Michael’s Wednesday afternoon in Santa Fe.
Farmington (2-1) scored the lone goal of the second half in the third-place contest. The two teams were knotted at 1-1 after the first half.
