The Topper Girls Varsity Soccer Team played at home at Sullivan Field Saturday against the Los Lunas Tigers. The Toppers dominated the game, with Kaya Krantz playing an exceptional game with four goals and one assist. Tara McDonald, Kaitlyn McGrane and Alyssa Parker all scored a goal each to cap off a 7-0 victory for the Toppers. During halftime, parents and fans had the opportunity to donate to the annual Kick-for-the-Cure fundraiser, which raised more than $2,200 for breast cancer research.
