The Los Alamos boy’s soccer team picked-up a significant win Tuesday, defeating St. Pius 1-0 at Sullivan Field.
The Hilltoppers improved to 3-1 on the season.
Los Alamos Junior midfielder Andreas Runde attempted a 30-yard free kick and found the top-right corner of the St. Pius goal to score the game’s only goal in the first half.
Tuesday was the Hilltoppers third game in five days, while it was the Sartans’ season opener. But, fatigue didn’t appear to be a factor as Los Alamos, like usual, relied on its midfield to provide several goal-scoring opportunities.
Runde’s eventual game-winner was made possible by Junior midfielder/forward Tristen Semelsberg, who was making his way to the attacking third before being tripped-up by a St. Pius defender.
Before the season started, Los Alamos coach Ron Blue said his team was going to be difficult to score on. So far, that statement has been proved to be true.
The Hilltoppers relied on its experienced back line to claim their second shutout of the season. The Los Alamos defense and senior goalkeeper Seth Hailey have only allowed two goals in the team’s first four games.
