Football rolls past ABQ Academy

ALBUQUERQUE - Saturday’s game against Albuquerque Academy was a must-win for the Los Alamos High School varsity football team, and the Hilltoppers delivered with a 50-0 victory.
After falling to Del Norte the previous week 51-25, LAHS needed a victory over Academy to remain competitive in the race for District 2, where dropping to 0-2 would have all but eliminated the team.
Instead, the team sits at 1-1 in the district, and is still alive in the race.
The Hilltoppers came out with a sense of urgency in this game, and were firing on all cylinders from the opening kickoff.
LAHS got the scoring started early, as quarterback Dylan Irish, known primarily for his running ability, fired a deep pass across the middle of the field on the team’s first possession.
The pass was perfect, dropping right into the arms of the wide-open Wyatt Saeger, who was sprinting down the middle of the field for a 69-yard touchdown to give the Hilltoppers a 7-0 lead.
Carson Schramm came up with an interception on the next Charger possession, setting LAHS up at midfield, and the Hilltoppers took advantage.
On the first play of the drive, Jack Stewart took a handoff and ran 48 yards for a touchdown, dragging a defender with him the last 15 yards, extending the LAHS lead to 14-0.
