Boy’s soccer cruises to first win of season

The Los Alamos High School varsity boy’s soccer team started the 2017 season off with a bang, defeating St. Michael’s 4-0 in their home opener Saturday at Sullivan Field.

What started out as a defensive battle turned into a one-man show, as LAHS senior Tristan Semelsberger put on an offensive display that had the entire crowd in awe. He scored a pair of highlight reel goals, and added an assist as the defense struggled to find ways to contain the Hilltoppers offense all evening.

“I thought we had some really nice moments,” LAHS head coach Ron Blue said. “Thank God that Tristan was able to finish and put the ball away.”

Although Blue felt like the team generated a lot of scoring opportunities, mental mistakes and offside calls kept the Hilltoppers from putting the game away any earlier.

“We scored five or six,” Blue said. “But we were offside, which I understand. We are still working on some offensive runs and some striker responsibilities, so it’s only a matter of time before we get that stuff figured out. That was a lot of fun, though.”
