The Los Alamos' girls soccer team took down Belen, 4-0, to start its state run Saturday at Sullivan Field.
Los Alamos outshot the Eagles 29-6 in the contest and was in control almost the entire time.
With the win, the No. 5 'Toppers advance to the Class 5A state quarterfinals where they'll take on No. 4 Aztec at 10:45 a.m. Thursday at the Albuquerque Public Schools Soccer Complex.
Emily Hopkins scored first against Belen. In the 11th minute, Allissia Haagenstad centered the ball on a corner kick and Hopkins knocked it in the goal.
About 6 minutes later, Haagenstad put Los Alamos up 2-0 with a goal from 35 yards out. Belen's goalie lost her high shot in the sun, allowing it to take a big bounce over her head and into the net.
The second half was a tighter match, but Los Alamos added two goals to its lead. Abby Schmalz scored in the 47th minute with a low shot that just squeked by the goalie on the near post side.
In the 77th minute, Jordan Henson played a long ball into the goal box and Kenidee Hatler kicked it out of the air and into the net for Los Alamos' fourth goal.
Los Alamos' boys soccer team will also be playing in the state quarterfinals Thursday. Los Alamos will play St. Pius X at 3:45 p.m. The Sartans beat Los Lunas, 3-1, in their first-round contest.
