  • Hilltoppers fall at Farmington 28-0

    Los Alamos coach Garrett Williams was anxious to see how his Hilltoppers would fare on the big stage.

    The Toppers, fresh off a big win against in Pojoaque in their season opener, hit the road to take on Farmington, which also opened with a mercy-rule win against Gallup.

    It would be a good test for Los Alamos. 

    As it turned out, the Toppers have some work to do. Farmington’s defense shut down Los Alamos and Essiel Carrasco scored on two long touchdown runs en route to a 28-0 victory Friday night.

  • Hilltoppers football team hits the road

    Garrett Williams thinks the Los Alamos High School football team can be a force to be reckoned with in the state.

    The Hilltoppers opened their season last week with a resounding 55-14 win against Pojoaque.

    It was a game of retribution for the Toppers, who were scorched in Pojoaque the previous week.

    “We played with confdence and intensity and we did a great job on both sides of the football,” Williams said this morning. “I was extremely pleased with the way we executed.”

    A tough task, however, awaits Williams and the Hilltoppers tonight.

    Los Alamos will travel to face Class 4A power Farmington. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and the game can be heard on KRSN-AM 1490.
