Just coming off a tough, grueling tournament, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team will head straight into another one.
The Hilltopper boys and girls will both compete in the Albuquerque Academy Invitational. The tournament, hosted by Academy’s Chargers, will get going Thursday afternoon.
Both Los Alamos teams will take on the Cleveland Storm in the opening round of the tournament. The Academy Invitational continues through Saturday in Albuquerque.
Los Alamos’ boys (3-3) enter the tournament after finishing fourth at the Louie Cernicek Invitational this past weekend. That tournament, which the Hilltoppers hosted, included three of the four top teams in Class 4A.
Belen, ranked second in NMSoccer.com’s coaches poll last week, won the tournament, defeating the top-ranked Farmington Scorpions and the eighth-ranked Roswell Coyotes Saturday to claim the title.
Los Alamos needed a late goal to force overtime against Goddard in the first round, but lost to Roswell 2-1 in the semifinals before falling to Farmington 4-3 in the third-place game.
Playing three games in two days is tough enough, but the Hilltoppers then had to come back Monday to face the St. Michael’s Horsemen, a solid Class A-3A team.
