Coming into the season, the Horizon boys’ soccer team new that defense would be a question mark.
In their opening game against Trout Lake, the defense gave up goal midway through the first half, but then shut them down the rest of the way.
The Hawks were able to answer the Trout Lake goal in the 60th minute with a score of their own from Stephen Stenberg, and the teams played to a 1-1 draw.
“We were definitely a whole different team in the second half,” Coach Mark Lago said.
Lago said that in addition to Stenberg, Josh Boyden had a standout game for the Hawks and Cameron Root gave a solid effort in goal.
“We had some hiccups on defense but we quickly straightened those out,” Lago said of his teams overall effort.
On the girls’ side for Horizon, the team saw its first action of the year against a Trout Lake JV team made up of boys and girls and fell 4-1.
Christina Brown scored the lone goal for the Hawks and Lago said that Liz Taylor “played her heart out” while playing all over the field.
“It was a very good effort,” Lago said. “Now the girls have a little experience to build on.”
The boys team takes the pitch against Portland Lutheran at home on Monday, while the girls are schedule to play Thursday against Trout Lake.

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
