The Hilltopper boys, meanwhile, beat Española Valley 8-1 and Del Norte, 8-1.
“They did really well,” boys head coach Lloyd Wilton after the Del Norte victory.
Wilton said he didn’t know anything about the Knights, but decided to take some of his mid-level players to the match and they took care of business.
Out of the 28 players on his team, he said almost all of them have gotten some varsity match play in this season.
