The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls soccer teams will both be back in action today after big wins on the road Saturday.
Los Alamos’ teams will take on the Volcano Vista Hawks in nondistrict contests.
Los Alamos’ boys will travel to Volcano Vista (6-4) while the Los Alamos girls will host the Hawks at Sullivan Field.
Saturday, both Hilltopper teams topped the Santa Fe Demons in a doubleheader at Ivan Head Stadium. They were both games the Hilltoppers needed to have.
On the girls side, Los Alamos held on for a 3-1 victory over Santa Fe in what may well be the toughest District 2-4A contest it will have.
Santa Fe, the only district team in several seasons with any realistic shot of topping Los Alamos for a district crown, played even with the Hilltoppers for much of the first half until a late goal by Meghan McDonald broke the 1-1 tie. Chandler Art’s header early in the second half provided a big insurance score.
Today, however, Los Alamos (4-8) will be without the services of Catie McDonald. McDonald, the team’s leading scorer, was hit with a red card late in the first half on an inadvertent collision with Santa Fe goalkeeper Mia Melchor.
Because of the red card, McDonald will also miss today’s game.
