Girls basketball: Santa Fe goes on 26-5 run to close game Wednesday

By Mike Cote

With the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team looking to pick up some momentum heading into the final stretch before the District 2-4A tournament, it put together a good 2-1/2 quarters against Santa Fe.
Unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, however, Santa Fe’s Demons put together a better 1-1/2 quarters to earn the win Wednesday night.
Los Alamos led by as many as 11 points against Santa Fe, which waxed the Hilltoppers in the teams’ first meeting late last month.
But the Demons held the Hilltoppers to just one point for an 8-plus minute stretch in the third and fourth quarters. Meanwhile, the Demons broke out of their first half shooting slump to go up early in the fourth quarter.
With the second half push, Santa Fe picked up the 45-35 victory, keeping pace with Española Valley for the top spot in the 2-4A race.
Los Alamos was red-hot in the first half, hitting better than 50 percent from the floor. Los Alamos pushed the ball toward the wings, drawing out the Santa Fe defense, then fed center Monika Teter, who was left open, to drop in 12 first half points.
