The Los Alamos Hilltopper hockey team went 1-0-1 against the No. 2 team in the New Mexico Interscholastic Ice Hockey League last weekend.
The Hilltoppers nipped the El Paso Franklin Cougars 2-1 in the first of two meetings at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink Saturday and knotted the other one 4-4 Sunday.
El Paso’s two league teams have been dominant this season, but the Cougars haven’t been dominant against the Hilltoppers. The Hilltoppers have beaten them in two of their three meetings, including their first in January.
Los Alamos hosted both teams last weekend. El Paso Coronado, the league leaders, swept the two-game set in Los Alamos, taking the first contest 2-1 Friday night, then knocking off Los Alamos 6-4 in Saturday’s second game.
