It’s do-or-die time in District 2-4A.
And the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will take its first step toward doing or dying Friday night.
Los Alamos will take on the Bernalillo Spartans in the district opener for both schools. That contest is slated for 7 p.m. at Spartan Field.
Last week, Los Alamos wrapped up its nondistrict season with a 29-25 victory at Albuquerque Academy, a game which Los Alamos trailed 11-8 at halftime but rallied to win, the clincher coming on a 42-yard touchdown strike from Brice Van Etten to Xavier Dennison.
The Hilltoppers are seeking a second straight District 2-4A title, but so far this season, no 2-4A team has established itself as a clear frontrunner. The Hilltoppers probably have the upper hand among the three teams with the best shot to vie for the title.
Los Alamos will have back-to-back contests with the Spartans and the Santa Fe Demons. A pair of wins will go a long way to clinching a title.
“Our guys are feeling good,” said Hilltopper head coach Garett Williams, who led them to the 2011 district crown. “We’re coming off a win, but it’s a new season. We’re going into district. The guys had a great week of practice and we’re ready to go.”
