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.
