  • ’Toppers pick up OT win vs. Chargers

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team bounced back from a disappointing loss in the semifinal round of the Albuquerque Academy Invitational to knock off its arch-rival in the third-place game Saturday.
    Los Alamos was topped in the tournament Friday afternoon, 3-1, by eventual champion Las Cruces. Saturday, however, Los Alamos scored late in the first overtime period against the host Academy Chargers to pick up a 2-1 victory.
    The Chargers and the Hilltoppers have met three consecutive years in the Class 4A championship game, with the Chargers winning all three games.

  • LA can’t slow Scorps’ ground game

    The powerful ground attack of the Farmington Scorpions was more than enough to upset the home opener of the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team Friday night.
    Los Alamos entertained Farmington Friday night, its first game of 2011 at Sullivan Field and its new, refurbished artificial surface. But neither turf nor the on-and-off showers nor, unfortunately, the Hilltopper defense, could do much to slow the Scorpions, who rolled up 224 yards in the first half, 214 of it coming on the first half.
    Farmington scored on three of its opening four possessions and cruised to a 41-0 win over Los Alamos. It was Los Alamos’ second straight shutout loss against an opponent from the Four Corners area.

  • LA picks up 3-0 victory in first round

    ALBUQUERQUE — The last seven days have been challenging for the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team.
    First, it hosted the Louie Cernicek Invitational last weekend, a tournament that included some of the top Class 4A talent in the state. Then, after playing three games in two days, it had to come right back Monday to face the St. Michael’s Horsemen.
    On top of that, Thursday the Hilltoppers opened play at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational, facing a quality Class 5A opponent in the Cleveland Storm.

  • Toppers drop Cleveland in shootout

    ALBUQUERQUE — In the first round of the Albuquerque Academy Invitational, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team’s defense was put to the test.
    It passed with flying colors.
    The Hilltoppers were forced to turn away constant pressure from the Cleveland Storm Thursday, but they were up to the challenge, holding the Storm to just one goal through regulation and two overtime periods.
    Then, with the contest heading into a shootout, Los Alamos goalkeeper Bryce Theesfeld came up with two big stops. Los Alamos converted four of its five chances to take a 2-1 victory over Cleveland and advance to the semifinals of the Academy Invitational.

  • No. 8 Farmington takes on LA tonight

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper football team will make its debut on its new turf at Sullivan Field tonight.
    The Hilltoppers will take on the Farmington Scorpions at the newly refurbished Sullivan Field. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
    Farmington will go into tonight’s game as the eighth-ranked team in Class 4A. It also heads into the game off a big victory last Thursday against the Los Alamos’ District 2-4A rival, Bernalillo.
    Bernalillo, the two-time defending district champs, got waxed by the Scorpions 40-0 in the Four Corners last week, one night before Los Alamos took a 60-0 defeat against the Aztec Tigers, a game that lasted only until halftime.

  • JV girls XC team earns big win

    Amanda Mercer led the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls junior varsity team to a big win over the rest of the cross country field at Saturday’s University of New Mexico Invitational.

    The Hilltopper girls JV finished with 22 points, one-quarter that of the Eldorado, the competition’s runner-up. The Hilltoppers placed four runners in the top five and all five scorers in the top nine to win the race going away.
    Mercer finished the course in 20:34 to hold off Rebecca Castillo of Volcano Vista by 5.8 seconds.
    The race was the season opener for both Los Alamos’ boys and girls JV teams.
