ARLINGTON — It took roughly three quarters for the rust to wear off. But when it did, the Horizon Christian basketball team looked like the team that started the season 2-1.
After being dormant for nearly a month due to snow and winter vacation, the Hawks came out ice cold last Saturday at Arlington, scoring just 16 points in the first three quarters.
But the fourth quarter was the complete opposite, as Horizon outscored the Honkers 26-4 down the stretch. Unfortunately for the Hawks, however, all four quarters counted in last Saturday’s 68-42 loss to Arlington.
“We hadn’t practiced in 10 days or played a game in 29 days, so we knew there would be a rust factor,” coach Ron Haynes said of his team, which had three games last week wiped out due to weather.
“It’s tough to play a veteran team like Arlington after a long layoff. But we learned from it,” he said.
Junior Brian Stenberg led the Hawks with 14 points — 10 in the fourth quarter — while sophomore Jon Strickland had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Sophomore post Jeff Larson added six points, Jared Nagreen and Jason Borton each had four, and Nathan Ohlsen and Joel Winters each scored two to round out the scoring for Horizon (2-2 overall).
Haynes said the biggest reason for the lopsided loss was his team’s inability to make shots in the early going, combined with 38 turnovers. Arlington took full advantage, riding Jeremy Rosendale’s 26 points to victory.
Horizon played Central Christian at home Tuesday (results not available at press time), and will travel to Condon today to make up a game that was canceled on Jan. 2. Makeup games for Cascade Locks and Wheeler County are still being arranged by Athletic Director, Oscar Stenberg.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
