Toppers fall to Pojoaque

-A A +A

The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys basketball team led most of the way against the Pojoaque Valley Elks Tuesday, but couldn’t hold on at the end.
The Elks (8-3) outscored the Hilltoppers 24-13 in the final quarter to take a 46-37 victory at Griffith Gymnasium.
Los Alamos held Pojoaque Valley to just 9 points in the first half and just 4 points in the second quarter. Unfortunately, Los Alamos (1-14) couldn’t take advantage of its big defensive showing on the other end, managing just 15 points itself.
The Hilltoppers went into Tuesday’s game coming off their first win of the season, a 57-54 overtime victory against the Taos Tigers.
Pojoaque Valley converted 15 field goals in the game to Los Alamos’ 9 and hit the only 3-pointer of the game.
Skyler Veenis had 15 points for the Hilltoppers to lead all scorers. Simon Heath finished with 12 points and Franklin Archuleta had 7. Only four Los Alamos players got into the scoring column.
Pojoaque Valley was paced by Matt Herrera with 13 points while Curtis Cordova finished with 12.
