ALBUQUERQUE — An impressive run in the third quarter by the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team wasn’t enough to make up for an impressive run by the Mayfield Trojans in the first half.
The Hilltoppers took on the Trojans, the defending Class 5A champion, in the first round of the Joe Armijo Invitational Thursday afternoon at Albuquerque Academy. The Trojans’ pressure defense and quick guards proved to be too much for the Hilltoppers, however, as they fell 55-33 and dropped into the loser’s bracket of the tournament.
Los Alamos fell behind by as many as 25 points early in the third quarter, but a huge third quarter put it back in the ballgame.
Spearheaded by reserve guard McKenzie Logan, who helped force seven Mayfield turnovers in the third quarter, the Hilltoppers went on a 14-0 run spanning nearly six minutes.
Los Alamos outscored Mayfield 16-4 in the third quarter. Point guard Anna Scott hit a pair of 3-pointers on consecutive Hilltopper possessions midway through the quarter, while Logan scored all seven of her points in the contest during the comeback attempt.
