The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team played one of its most complete games of the 2011 season Saturday, but that wouldn't be enough to pull off an upset.
The Hilltoppers fell in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs Saturday to the Piedra Vista Panthers. After going up 1-0 in the first half, the Hilltoppers couldn't convert on several more chances throughout the game.
The game would ultimately go into penalty kicks, with the Panthers winning the shootout 3-1 to take the first round victory.
"We played really well," Los Alamos head coach Evan Gartz said. "The energy was there. We had a lot of momentum during the game. We actually had a lot more scoring chances than they did. They left it all on the field today."
