LA boys fall in third-place game to Chargers, 3-2
After a whiz-bang start to the Albuquerque Academy Invitational, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team dropped its final two games of the tournament last weekend, including a 3-2 loss in the third-place game to the host Chargers.
Both of Los Alamos’ losses in the tournament — the Hilltoppers fell to the Las Cruces Bulldawgs 1-0 in Friday’s semifinal — came in overtime. Las Cruces needed an extra period before its game-winning goal, while Los Alamos and Academy went to two OT periods before that contest was decided.
The two teams will meet again Friday at Academy in a regularly-scheduled contest.
Saturday’s loss against the Chargers was the third loss of the season for the Hilltoppers (4-5) to a Class 4A contender. They dropped games to Farmington 5-0 Aug. 27 and 4-3 Sept. 3.
Los Alamos stayed put in the NMSoccer.com rankings last week, holding on to its No. 4 spot. Full prep boys and girls rankings will appear in the Los Alamos Monitor later this week.
