The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team broke open a tight ballgame in the fourth quarter at Deming Friday night.

Los Alamos scored 27 points in the final quarter to win going away, 62-45, at Wildcat Gymnasium. Los Alamos went into the ballgame as the No. 9 seed in the 4A playoffs, while Deming was the No. 8 seed.

The Hilltoppers (17-12) held a scant 2 point lead after three quarters of play, but dominated in the final quarter, holding the Wildcats (17-10) to 12 points.

With the win, Los Alamos will now advance to the quarterfinal round of the Class 4A playoffs. It will play at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday in The Pit in Albuquerque.
