LA will host Belen's Eagles in big 4A contest tonight

-A A +A
By The Staff

Despite losing by four touchdowns last season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team had a turning point of sorts in its 2011 contest against the Belen Eagles.
Los Alamos could use a boost like that again. Tonight, it will get that chance.
The Hilltoppers will face the Belen Eagles in a Class 4A match-up. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Sullivan Field.
Los Alamos is heading into tonight’s contest off an impressive showing a week ago. Los Alamos thumped the Kirtland Central Broncos for homecoming, 34-0, to improve to 2-2 on the season.
But while the Hilltoppers went in as favorites last Friday, they will be the underdogs against a solid Eagles squad that is currently ranked No. 6 in the state.
The situation was similar for the Hilltoppers a year ago when they traveled to Belen. In that game, Belen grabbed a 35-8 victory, but the game wasn’t as one-sided as the final score would make it seem, with the Hilltoppers moving the ball fairly effectively on offense, although those drives would stall except for the final eight-play, 76-yard drive to the end zone.
That contest marked a turnaround of sorts for the Hilltoppers and the last hurrah for the Eagles, whose season started off promising but quickly unraveled.
