BERNALILLO — After falling victim to a sweep Saturday against the Bernalillo Spartans, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team is in a bit of precarious spot in District 2-4A.
Los Alamos took on Bernalillo Saturday with a chance to grab at least a piece of first place in the 2-4A standings, but instead, now must win a big game Wednesday to keep its chances for a runner-up finish alive.
The Hilltoppers (10-12 overall, 4-4 in 2-4A) were hit hard early in both ends of the doubleheader. Bernalillo scored seven runs in the first two innings of game one, then scored four runs in the bottom of the first of game two to earn the sweep.
Bernalillo took the first game 8-1, then won the second game 5-2.
Spartan star pitcher Demi Madalena threw complete games in both ends of the doubleheader. The one run she allowed in the first game came off a rare balk call — the game’s umpires were calling both Madalena and Hilltopper starting pitcher Jordan Hammock ridiculously tight when it came to perceived irregularities in throwing motions, so much so that Los Alamos actually played most of the game under protest.
Madalena then allowed just one earned run in the second game, solo home run by Kiana Zerr in the third inning.
