Despite starting the season in a somewhat up-and-down fashion, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers were far more up than down Tuesday against Los Alamos.
The Chargers, one of the top teams in Class 4A, dominated the bulk of the first half against the homestanding Hilltoppers. The Hilltoppers got back into the game with a late first half-goal, but the Chargers would score midway through the second half to put the game away.
Los Alamos struggled to contain Academy’s main scoring threat, Andrew Stone, who had several breakaway chances throughout and garnered a lot of Los Alamos’ back third attention as Academy picked up a 3-1 victory at Sullivan Field.
Even though Los Alamos struggled throughout much of the first half and gave up an early goal to Stone, it tied the game and seemed to grab some momentum just before the break.
William Steinkamp picked up a rebound off a scorching, close-range shot from Cooper Christensen to knock it past Charger goalkeeper Joseph Pauza, knotting the score at 1-1.
But with only about a minute remaining in the first half, Academy was awarded a direct kick just outside the penalty box to the right of the goal.
