ALAMOSA — Friday afternoon the boy’s soccer team shut out Montezuma-Cortez with a 4-goal performance. Alamosa entered Friday’s game with a 1-2 record looking to break even.

Pedro Francisco got 6 shots off and 5 of those were on target only having one sail. His first goal of the day was off an assist by Tomas Jose-Francisco that put Alamosa up 1-0. The Mean Moose would take that lead into the half. Then in the 26th minute of the second half Pedro Francisco would strike again this time via a header off a corner kick to make it 2-0 and the rout was on.  Pedro Francisco completed the hat trick off an assist from junior Miguel Salmon to make it 3-0. The final goal came from sophomore Antonio Esteban.
