After one inning, it looked like the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team would run away with a victory in its home opener Tuesday.
After seven innings, Los Alamos was breathing a little sigh of relief to have come away with a win.
Los Alamos jumped out to a 3-run lead at Overlook Park and came within a hit or two of breaking the game open in the third and fourth innings.
Instead, Los Alamos had to sweat out a 3-run rally in the top of the fifth by the Pojoaque Elks, not to mention the heart of the Pojoaque order at the plate representing the tying run in the top of the seventh.
However, the Hilltoppers held on in Tuesday’s contest, grabbing a 5-3 victory over the Elks.
“We pulled through as a team,” Hilltopper second baseman Stephanie Abney said. “It was good.”
Abney scored a run in the first and drove in a run in the fourth to help Los Alamos pick up the nondistrict win over its rival down the road.
Meanwhile, Hilltopper Briana Radosevich earned the win on the slab in her first starting job of the season. Radosevich went 4-1/3 innings, giving up just one earned run and striking out five.
