The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team dropped both ends of its doubleheader on the road Tuesday.
The Hilltoppers, playing a very tough Los Lunas Tigers squad, was beaten in six innings in the opener, 13-3, then was nipped in the second game, 5-4.
Los Alamos actually led 2-0 early in the first game. The contest was close until the bottom of the fifth when Los Lunas erupted for six runs to take control.
In game two, Monika Teter, just four days removed from the basketball season, made her first start, going the distance, but Los Lunas scored a pair of runs off her in the bottom of the sixth go up 5-0. Los Alamos rallied for four runs in the top of the seventh, but Los Lunas’ D’Ana Gabaldon fanned the final Hilltopper batter to secure the win for the Tigers.
“This was a big test for us,” Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said. “Los Lunas is one of the best 4A teams in the state. I am very proud of how we battled back, especially in the second game. We have a few things to work on, but these games gave us an indication of where we are and where we need to be.”
