Neither Los Alamos Hilltopper soccer team escaped their trip to the Four Corners with a victory Saturday.
The Hilltopper girls soccer team couldn’t convert on several chances in the opener of a boys-girls doubleheader Saturday, losing in a shootout to the Farmington Scorpions. Meanwhile, the Hilltopper boys again couldn’t hang on to a two-goal lead in the second half, falling 3-2 to the Scorpions at Hutchison Stadium.
It was the second straight meeting that the Hilltopper boys were on the short end of contest against the Scorpions. The two teams met in the Class AAAA state championship game last season, with the Scorpions prevailing 3-0.
“It’s frustrating,” Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. “The boys had the momentum…It’s a tough loss when it happens. We controlled the game, but we had some lapses.”
In their season opener Thursday, Los Alamos’ boys held a 2-0 lead after 49 minutes of play at Rio Rancho, but Rio Rancho tied the score with two unanswered goals in the second half. Los Alamos would eventually win that contest in a shootout.
Saturday, Los Alamos (1-1) put 15 shots on goal to just 4 by Farmington.
