FARMINGTON — The Piedra Vista soccer teams had mixed results against Los Alamos on Saturday.
The PV boys won 4-0 at home, while the girls lost by the same score on the road to the Hilltoppers.
Beau Velarde scored three goals, and Cody Colebrook added a fourth for the Panthers (8-9) in the victory.
"The kids played real well and connected well. There were no mistakes in the back," said PV boys head coach Pablo Quintana. "We were able to punish their mistakes. This is definitely a confidence boost."
Quintana thinks the victory over Los Alamos (9-10) will give his team a boost as the season winds down to the final two regular season games.
"The boys have the confidence and are looking to come out and play well," he said.
The PV girls had a difficult time on the road against the Lady Hilltoppers (8-10).
"We've kept harder teams out, but we just had small letdowns that they punished us on," said PV girls coach Ryan Mussett.
The Lady Panthers (9-8) entered halftime trailing 1-0, but allowed three second-half goals as Los Alamos was able to put the game away in the final 40 minutes.
PV will shift its focus to its final two district games against Aztec and Farmington, as they attempt to earn a home playoff game in the state tournament.
"I think if we win one of those we'll be in good shape," Mussett said. "The girls know what to expect now after playing both Aztec and Farmington already."
Bloomfield 4, Robertson 2
The Lady Bobcats won their seventh straight game as their quest for a state playoff spot continued on Saturday.
Teagan Mosley scored three times and Anani Orozco added another goal in the home win for Bloomfield (8-11 overall, 6-3 District 1-3A/A).
In the first meeting between the two schools on Sept. 28, Robertson won easily 5-1, so head coach Kate Dunlap was happy to see a strong response from her team this time around.
"It was a hard game, but we were ready," Dunlap said. "It feels good. The girls are hoping to get to state and continue this winning streak."
Bloomfield will close out district play on Tuesday at Santa Fe Indian, and Dunlap wants to see another strong performance to boost the team's playoff resume.
"It's essential. The girls want to end the season strong and show everyone we're becoming a soccer school," she said.
Bloomfield 10, Robertson 0
The Bobcats moved within one win of a perfect district season with a blowout win against Robertson on Saturday.
Bloomfield (12-5, 9-0 Distict 1-3A/A) ended the game via mercy rule with 15 minutes left in the second half.
"We're really happy with the way the boys have been playing," said assistant coach Scott Reid. "They've responded to some different formations we've tried, and they've been putting balls in the back of the net."
The balanced Bobcats' attack didn't have much difficulty shredding the Robertson (2-11, 2-5) defense as five players scored goals in the win.
Edgar Fonseca led the way for Bloomfield with three goals while Alex Portillo, Gage Kreilick and Samuel Gutierrez each scored a pair of goal, and Raul Fonseca chipped in one.
The Bobcats will finish up the regular season on Monday with a home game against Questa.
