'Toppers shut out in 2-4A contest by Jaguars

-A A +A

SANTA FE – If the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team wants to repeat as District 2-4A champs, it’s going to have to make a comeback to do so.
And it’s going to have to come back against a tough competitor.
Los Alamos slipped into second place in the 2-4A race Saturday. It was nipped in a big district contest by the Capital Jaguars at Jaguar Field.
Capital’s Jason Alarcon, the most dominant offensive presence in the district and one of the tops in the state, scored the lone goal of the game at the 24-minute mark. Alarcon corralled a long through-ball and beat Los Alamos goalkeeper Chris Parker to the corner.
Alarcon’s chip shot over Parker and into the net was enough to give the Jaguars a 1-0 victory.
It’s been a wild ride for the Jaguars so far in 2013. They had to forfeit four wins early in the season because they’d used ineligible players in those contests.
“We’ve had a lot of adversity this season,” Capital head coach Eugene Doyle said. “A lot of things haven’t gone our way, but we play one half at a time, one game at a time and try not to focus on what’s happened in the past.”
Even with some key players out, the Jaguars responded well. They’ve lost just one contest on the field this year and are now atop the 2-4A standings.
