The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys and girls junior varsity soccer teams played two separate games with their counterparts from Hope Christian and in both instances nothing was resolved.
Wednesday, the Hiltopper girls JV team deadlocked with the Huskies 1-1 at Sullivan Field. That same day, Los Alamos’ boys JV squad finished in a 1-1 tie with Hope Christian, also at home.
The boys game pitted two strong teams against each other. Los Alamos was 9-3 heading into the contest, while Hope Christian was 11-2.
In that game, Hope Christian’s Kevin Sanchez scored in the first half, the same half Los Alamos’ goal was scored. Both teams’ offenses were shut out in the second half.
Valerie Li, an eighth grader, got the lone score for the Hilltoppers in the girls game Wednesday. Li’s goal gave Los Alamos the edge at halftime, but Hope cored in the second half to tie things up.
The Hilltopper girls followed that up with a victory Thursday night at home. The Hilltoppers got a second half goal from Hannah Littleton to nip the St. Michael’s Horsemen 1-0.
With that win, Los Alamos’ girls improve to 5-7-1 on the year.
