    The Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team kept up its winning ways in District 2AAAA Saturday by blanking the visiting Bernalillo Spartans.

    After an up-and-down first half Saturday, Los Alamos settled into its game, scoring seven times in the second half to rough up Bernalillo 8-0 at Sullivan Field.

    “We got off to a slow start, but then we started passing the way we like to,” Hilltopper head coach Evan Gartz said. “We ripped them apart.”

    Farmington, which has been up and down the dial during the 2009 regular season, is playing as well as just about any team in Class AAAA right now.
