The Los Alamos High School Toppers hosted the Española Sundevils Wednesday afternoon in what looked to be an overcast wet game.
The skies cleared and the Toppers were hungry for a victory after their loss last week to West Las Vegas.
The Toppers jumped out to an early lead and never looked back for a 9-4 victory.
The Hilltoppers will be on the road at 4 p.m. next Wednesday against the Taos Tigers.
