  • Tampa Bay keeps Colts winless

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Call it ugly. Call it sloppy. Call it anything you want.
    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers don’t care. Close games, rallies, penalty-filled performances, as long as they end with celebrations, the Bucs will take them all.
    Josh Freeman threw for 287 yards and a touchdown, LeGarrette Blount ran for 127 yards and a score, and the Buccaneers rallied to beat the winless Indianapolis Colts 24-17 on Monday night.
    Freeman picked up the tough yards, Blount had the highlight play and the defense ended the night with four sacks. Together, they helped the Buccaneers win their third consecutive game.

  • ´Toppers hold on to top Jaguars...

    It was a struggle for both teams, to be sure, but the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team picked up a crucial win Saturday afternoon.
    Los Alamos got, and needed, just one score as it took on the Capital Jaguars. David Stroud picked up a goal off an assist from Henry Steinkamp at the 20-minute mark of the first half.
    That goal, setup by a nifty dribbling effort by Steinkamp, proved to be the difference in the contest as the Hilltoppers held on for a 1-0 victory at Sullivan Field.
    Saturday’s game pitted the No. 5-ranked Hilltoppers against the No. 6-ranked Jaguars, who have put together a stellar nondistrict season.
    But the contest was highlighted by some big plays from the Hilltopper defense.

  • 'Toppers pull off...

    Two weeks ago against the Bloomfield Bobcats, the Los Alamos Hilltopper football team looked like it might be ready to turn a corner.

    After a better-than-expected showing against Belen a week after that, the Hilltoppers got a big shot of confidence.

    But even with those solid performances, few could’ve predicted what happened Friday night in the Hilltoppers’ Homecoming contest.

    Los Alamos, going up against the No. 4-ranked team in Class 3A, the Albuquerque Academy Chargers, scored three unanswered touchdowns in the first half and held the Chargers, one of the top-rushing teams in the state, without an offensive touchdown for a 36-20 upset win at Sullivan Field.
