The Los Alamos hockey team hosted Durango for a pair of games over the weekend. Los Alamos won the first contest, 5-1, Friday night and then tied with Durango, 4-4, Saturday morning.
The Hilltoppers began the games on fire Friday night. In the first five minutes of the game, Los Alamos took four shots and three of them found the back of Durango’s net. After that, however, Los Alamos was short-handed for much of the first period and had to kill power play after power play.
Despite being out shot by a 10-5 in the first, goalie Isaac Dunwoody kept Durango off the scoreboard until the very end of the period. With 16 seconds left in the first, Durango scored its only goal of the game. Durango kept that momentum rolling in the second period and fired 12 shots, but wasn’t able to add to its score.
In the third period, Los Alamos finished strong, out shooting Durango 13-4 and adding a pair of insurance goals.
The Hilltoppers are now 5-5-3 overall.
