The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team drubbed one of its most bitter rivals on the road Friday afternoon.
Los Alamos scored four goals, two in each half, before the St. Pius X Sartans got on the board at Ben Rios Field. The Sartans halved the lead late in the game, scoring two goals within about a minute of each other, but would get no closer as Los Alamos prevailed 4-2.
It was the second win in a row by the Hilltoppers over the Sartans and their third win over the Sartans since the 2010 playoffs.
Forward Collin Stone had a hat trick in Friday’s contest and was also credited with an assist in a huge offensive showing for him and Los Alamos.
Interestingly, Los Alamos only got off eight shots in the contest — the Sartans had 20 shots — but made half of those shots count.
Stone doubled his point total for the season, from 7 to 14, with his performance against the Sartans.
Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said it was the team’s back third that set it up with the scoring chances.
“Our defense looked a lot better,” he said. “We’re still working on it a little bit, but we were solid. They had a lot of attacks. They ruled possession of the game but we were organized in the back. They had a lot of shots, but not a lot of good looks.”
