For one half of Saturday’s District 2-5A opening win against Del Norte, the Los Alamos girl’s soccer team performed how coach Gary Ahlers wanted it to.
But, Gary Ahlers wants that to happen for two complete halves.
The Hilltoppers defeated Del Norte 8-1 in Albuquerque. Los Alamos got a brace from Sienna Ahlers, and led 2-0 at halftime. Four minutes into the second half, the Knights stunned Los Alamos with a goal to make it 2-1.

The Hilltoppers hosted Albuquerque Academy on Tuesday, after the Monitor’s print deadline.
