Once again, the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls basketball team’s defense came up big in a big game.
Unfortunately, the Hilltoppers’ offense again couldn’t match the performance on the other end of the floor Monday night in Roswell.
In the first round of the Goddard Holiday Classic Monday night, Los Alamos held the No. 2-ranked Roswell Coyotes to just 27 points through three quarters of play, but managed just 23 points during that same time span. The Coyotes rallied in the fourth quarter to pick up a 42-29 victory.
