Three plays in just over two minutes completely changed the complexion of Los Alamos' football game at Capital Friday.
The 'Toppers were in Capital's red zone and seemed poised to take the lead. A fumble, however, ended the threat and led to a Capital touchdown drive and the Jaguars took a 14-6 second-quarter lead.
On the ensuing kickoff, Capital stripped the ball from Los Alamos' return man and ran into the end zone for another score.
On the next kickoff, Capital once again stripped the ball and recovered it. That led to another Jaguar touchdown and a 28-6 lead.
Capital went on to win the game, 34-22.
Lane Saunders gave Los Alamos the first lead of the game. On Los Allamos' first possession, he scored on a 70-yard touchdown run.
A big play by Capital tied things up near the end of the first quarter.
After that it seemed like Los Alamos was going to go back on top, but the wheels came off and Capital took a big lead before Los Alamos was able to get rolling again.
Two halfback touchdown passes from Saunders got the 'Toppers back in the game. After Los Alamos' last score, the team recovered an onside kick with a little over two minutes left in the game. An interception, however, ended Los Alamos' comeback bid.
