’Toppers claim Cernicek title in PKs

Playing two state title contenders in a span of 15 hours didn’t faze the Los Alamos boy’s soccer team.
After defeating Hope Christian 2-1 on Thursday, the Hilltoppers won the make up championship game of the Louie Cernicek Tournament, outlasting Roswell in a penalty shootout on Friday at Sullivan Field.
“For them (Los Alamos) to win a difficult game and comeback and play arguably one of the best teams in the state, I couldn’t be happier,” Los Alamos coach Ron Blue said. “I’m very proud of them. Guys are starting to recognize what it means. For us, to be good we need to be a team, we need to be cohesive, be flexible and move.”
“We’ve got talent. It’s just about putting it all together.”
On Friday, which was a make up game from the Louie Cernicek Tournament championship that was cancelled due to weather on Aug. 27, Los Alamos and Roswell battled for 80 minutes to a scoreless draw at the end of regulation. The teams played a sudden death overtime period of 10 minutes, but neither of them prevailed with a golden goal.
