    The loss dropped the Hilltoppers to 5-8 on the season. They have lost five of their last six contests.

    Los Alamos continues its district season Saturday with a contest at Santa Fe. Los Alamos is still considered the team to beat in district this season and finished as the third-ranked team in Class 4A in this week's coaches' poll, tied with St. Pius X.

    Los Alamos bounced back from a less-than-stellar first half to tie the contest in the second half. Then, after a back-and-forth overtime period, Bryce Theesfeld stopped an Eldorado penalty kick, while the Eagles missed two more in a row.

    Hilltoppers Cassidy Reeves and Amy Neal converted the final two penalty kick attempts to earn the Hilltoppers their fourth win of the season either in shootout or in overtime.

    District 2-4A will remain intact for the next two-year block of time, the New Mexico Activities Association determined Wednesday.

  • ´Toppers bounce back from slow start to upend Spartans

    It wasn’t the kind of performance a top-rated team was supposed to have against a huge underdog in the first half Tuesday night.
    Instead of packing things up and heading for home at halftime of Tuesday’s girls soccer game between the heavily-favored Los Alamos Hilltoppers and Bernalillo Spartans, the Hilltoppers were trying to figure out why they still had a zero on the scoreboard.
    Los Alamos, which looked to be sleepwalking through most of the first half, finally got on track in the second half, attacking the Bernalillo goal consistently and finding the net en route to a win 4-0 in its District 2-4A opener. Los Alamos scored three times in about nine minutes during the second half and tacked on a late goal for good measure to top the Spartans.

  • LA opens district season with 4-1 win vs. Bernalillo

    In its District 2-4A boys soccer opener, the Los Alamos Hilltoppers were facing a team that’s something of an X-factor.
    The Hilltoppers hosted the Bernalillo Spartans Tuesday afternoon at Sullivan Field. The Spartans, who came in with a near-.500 record and boasted one of the top scorers in Class 4A, made the contest a little more interesting, halving the Hilltoppers’ lead midway through the second half.
    But Los Alamos scored a pair of unanswered goals later in the second half to take a 4-1 victory over Bernalillo. Ryan Kniss, who also had an assist Tuesday, scored with about 13 minutes remaining and Colin Stone added another goal right at the end of regulation to seal the win.
