The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team was thumped by the St. Pius X Sartans Thursday afternoon in Albuquerque.
After taking a 2-0 edge after one half, the Sartans scored three times — twice in a seven-minute span — in the second half to top the Hilltoppers 5-0 at Sartan Field.
Thursday’s contest was a nondistrict affair between the former district rivals. St. Pius left 2-4A after the 2006 season, never having lost a district game since joining the district in 2000.
St. Pius got off 15 shots-on-goal to Los Alamos’ three, all of which were scooped up by St. Pius’ Timothy Lang.
Los Alamos, the defending Class 4A champion, defeated St. Pius in the semifinals of its 2010 state title run.
This season, however, Los Alamos has posted just a 4-6 record against Class 4A teams. Those losses include shutouts at the hands of Farmington and Albuquerque Academy along with Thursday’s shutout loss. The Sartans have shut out six opponents in 2011.
