Toppers rally in final at-bat to top Broncos

-A A +A

Softball: LA closes out season Friday vs. Piedra Vista

By Mike Cote

Down to its last at-bat, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team could’ve easily packed things in against a battle-tested Kirtland Central Broncos unit.
Instead, with the game on the line, the Hilltoppers came up big.
Kiana Zerr’s lead-off double in the seventh, followed up by a pair of Kirtland Central errors and a scratch infield hit to bring home the winning run propelled the Hilltoppers to an important Class 4A victory Tuesday at Overlook Park.
Los Alamos prevailed 5-4 to earn the win over Kirtland Central, which plays in the toughest district in Class 4A and arguably the toughest district in the state regardless of classification, District 1.
Kirtland Central rallied for two runs off Los Alamos pitcher Monika Teter to take a 4-3 lead in the top of the sixth and appeared to be well in control.
The Broncos’ Taylor Yazzie very nearly won the contest mostly through her own efforts. In the pitching circle, Yazzie held Los Alamos to one earned run through six innings, and at the plate drove in three runs and scored the fourth.
“We were really nervous, but we had to pull through,” Los Alamos shortstop Dancie Smith said.  “We had to be strong for each other.”
