'Toppers close out season with win

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

SANTA FE — The main objective for the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team Thursday afternoon was to tune up for the upcoming state playoffs.
But a win to close out the season is always nice, too.
Los Alamos took on the St. Michael’s Horsemen at Brother Abdon Field. Neither team had particularly efficient showings on offense, but Los Alamos escaped with a 1-0 victory.
Hilltopper Julia Haagenstad netted the only score of the contest, sending a short shot through a big scrum right in front of the St. Michael’s goal on a direct kick chance.
Los Alamos controlled the contest for the majority of the first half, but St. Mike’s set itself up with some shots late in the half and early in the second half, all of which were off-target.
Hilltopper goalkeeper Elena Atencio, who suffered an ankle injury earlier this month and is still wearing an ankle brace, earned the shutout, the eighth of the season for Los Alamos. Los Alamos has only allowed one goal since Oct. 3.
“I think they’ve really gotten it together,” Atencio said of the Hilltopper defense. “We were going through a tough time finding who goes where. It’s nice they’ve really put it together.”
