JACONA - The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team scored three times in the second half after falling behind in the first half to prevail over the Pojoaque Valley Elks in its 2015 season opener.
Fullback Derek Selvage scored three times, including what would be the game winner with 4:13 remaining, to help lead Los Alamos to a 19-13 win against the Elks.
The Elks, using their two-pronged attack of Chris Quintana and Daniel Rael, put together some long, clock-chewing drives, but had trouble punching the ball into the end zone.
Los Alamos had several chances in the ballgame, but likewise couldn't get to paydirt until the second half. Selvage's third touchdown was the only time the Hilltoppers had the lead in the game.
