SANTA FE – It was unknown heading into Friday’s District 2-4A girls basketball game whether the Santa Fe Demons scored a fluky win earlier in the week or if the Demons are for real.
It appears the Demons are for real.
Santa Fe has officially proclaimed itself a serious threat to the 2-4A title in the first week of district season play. After a stunning upset over the homestanding Española Valley Sundevils Tuesday, Santa Fe followed it up by pounding the Los Alamos Hilltoppers Friday night.
Santa Fe held Los Alamos to just 12 points in the first half, while freshman Sabrina Lozada-Cabbage had a coming out party despite being banged up in the second quarter. Lozada-Cabbage finished with 15 points – playing only sparingly in the second and fourth periods – as the Demons blasted the Hilltoppers 54-30 at Toby Roybal Memorial Gymnasium.
Los Alamos had perhaps its worst shooting night of the season, hitting just 9 of 43 attempts from the field (20.9 percent). It went on a 2-for-13 stretch to open the third quarter and managed just one field goal in the first eight-plus minutes of the contest.
The Hilltoppers were hampered by the absence of center Hayley Each, who had one of the best nights of her career Tuesday against Bernalillo. Each, however, was under the weather Friday and unavailable to play.
