The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team earned a solid win in one of its postseason tune-up games Thursday.
The Hilltoppers shut out a stout opponent in the St. Michael’s Horsemen, taking a 3-0 victory at Brother Abdon Field in Santa Fe.
Hilltopper leading scorer Amy Neal had a goal and two assists Thursday to help the Hilltopers to the victory in their next-to-last game of the regular season. Los Alamos will play one more contest, Saturday at Aztec, before the Class 4A playoff seedings are announced Sunday.
Katie Hemphill picked up an assist on Neal’s goal, while Neal handed out assists to both Naomi Movshovich and Leslie Guarello. Bryce Theesfeld earned the shutout victory in goal, stopping four Horsemen shots.
For Los Alamos (15-4), it was the team’s 10th shutout of the season and sixth in the last seven games. Los Alamos’ defense has allowed just three goals since Sept. 15.
For St. Mike’s, goalkeeper Alyssa Evans made 10 saves.
Hilltopper assistant coach Paul Criscuolo said St. Mike’s played with five people in the penalty box and just one player up top most of the game.
“We noticed they did the same thing against St. Pius and when we played them in the preseason, they played with a similar lineup,” Cricuolo said.
