Topper Football Falls Hard To Santa Fe Demons

The Los Alamos Hilltoppers burst onto Sullivan Field Friday evening to play a district game against the Santa Fe Demons. The Demons have always been a tough opponent for the Toppers and Friday night’s game proved how tough the Demons can be. In the first two quarters the Toppers held their own by scoring a touchdown in each quarter and holding the Demons to only three touch downs with the half time score of 14-20. However, the Toppers could only manage two more touchdowns for the remainder of the game and the Demons ran the score up to 28-55 to win the contest. Photo by John McHale/
