'Toppers show Tigers no love

-A A +A
By The Staff

It's always hard to see your team lose, but it's even worse when your home team is completely obliterated. Such was the case for the unhappy Taos Tiger fans as they left the field on Friday night following a visit from the Hilltopper football team. In their first 2AAAA game, the Hilltoppers left the Tigers scoreless, as they went on to a 48-0 win.

The first quarter started out a little shaky for the Tigers, but Los Alamos' David Brock got the party started by scoring the first touchdown for the Hilltoppers in the first few minutes of the game. Zachary Mang was back on the field last night, following a brief suspension. The Los Alamos defense was looking good, as the 'Toppers held the Tigers back, allowing Mang to score the second touchdown of the night. L.A. tried for a two-point conversion, but there was a flag on the play, which resulted in the ball being moved to the 8-yard line. The 'Toppers tried again and this time were successful in getting the two-point conversion. After a penalty and a couple of incomplete passes, Mang got the ball and scored yet another touchdown with 4:44 left in the first quarter. Max Argo followed up with a field goal, to give the 'Toppers a good lead.
