'Toppers, Demons battle for 1st place

-A A +A
By The Staff

While not officially, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team’s season could well come down to Friday’s game.
The Hilltoppers have the biggest game of their season scheduled for Friday when they take on the Santa Fe Demons. That game is set for 7 p.m. at Ivan Head Stadium.
The winner of that game will control its own destiny for the balance of the District 2-4A season, while the loser’s odds of winning a district title become considerably longer.
Los Alamos in particular can jump right into the driver’s seat of the district standings. Following Friday’s game, it has just two very winnable games remaining, at home against Española Valley and at Capital, two teams that have struggled all season.
The Hilltoppers (2-5 overall, 1-0 in 2-4A) and the Demons (2-4, 1-0) met under identical circumstances in 2012 at Sullivan Field.
In that game, Santa Fe’s duo of quarterback Jordan Booth-Homer and tailback Anthony Abeyta combined for 305 yards and six touchdowns — one of Booth-Homer’s touchdowns was on a kick return where he was completely untouched — as the Demons pasted the Hilltoppers 62-30.
