The Los Alamos High School Varsity Topper football team hosted the Santa Fe High Demons Friday, marking the first of two home games to be played in this condensed sports season.

The Toppers came out swinging but fell to the relentless Demon offense and defense 0-40. Even though the game was lopsided, you couldn’t help but feel the excitement of Friday night football.

The Toppers will be back in action Friday, March 26 at home against the Taos Tigers. Gene Mortensen will be broadcasting the game via the Los Alamos Daily Post YouTube channel here for those who can’t make it out to Sullivan Field.
