    SANTA FE — It was a bit of a balancing act that the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team had to perform Tuesday, but it didn’t appear to be much of problem.
    About the only concern the Hilltoppers had in the District 2AAAA finale was to make sure they didn’t tire themselves out with two big games scheduled for later this week.
    The Hilltoppers took on the Capital Jaguars to close out the district season Tuesday at Jaguar Field and, as expected, routed them 10-0, finishing the game off about eight minutes early.

    The Hilltoppers finally shook off the upset-minded Capital Jaguars in the second half of Tuesday’s game, scoring three quick-strike goals to win 3-0 and earn its third-straight District 2AAAA title.
