Horizon falls to 0-2 with 5-0 loss
The Horizon Christian soccer team absorbed its second consecutive early-season defeat Saturday with a 5-0 loss to new conference foe Umatilla. The Hawks were able to stay in the game until mid-way through the second half, but gave up three late goals to spell their downfall. Monday’s home game versus Riverdale was cancelled due to transportation problems for the visiting team. The Hawks’ next game is today at Columbia Christian.
