The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team is hoping to finally host a game at home Friday after its first two scheduled home openers were nixed.
Los Alamos picked up its first victory of the season Saturday against La Cueva, taking a 4-3 victory, along with earning a forfeit win over Rio Rancho’s Cleveland High School.
Against La Cueva, the Hilltoppers got four goals from four different skaters to earn a 4-3 victory. Dustin Taylor, Tyler Thorn, Gabriel Intrator and Arnoldo Ortiz all picked up tallies for the Hilltoppers in their victory.
The previous night, Cleveland forfeited its contest, which was scheduled for Los Alamos County Ice Rink. The rink, which was still closed for what was supposed to be the Hilltoppers’ opener Nov. 18, was operational for Friday’s scheduled contest, but Cleveland elected not to drive up to Los Alamos due to weather concerns.
In the second half of a doubleheader Saturday, Los Alamos lost to Cleveland, 4-2 in Rio Rancho.
Los Alamos (2-3) is scheduled to face a very tough customer, Cibola, Friday night at the ice rink. Game time is set for 8:15 p.m.
Hilltopper head coach Joel Kress said he was much happier with his team’s offensive performance this weekend than in its previous outings.
