Horizon routs Catlin Gabel 7-0

Hawks build big lead early, never let up


Brent Rovianek gets past a Catlin Gabel defender during Horizon's 7-0 win.

Horizon Christian scheduled a game against the Catlin Gabel JV team as a test to see where a young Hawk team stands early in the season.

Consider the test passed.

Catlin Gabel is one of the top 3A teams in the state, and its JV team used to routinely dominate the Hawks. Horizon was doing the dominating this time, with a 7-0 win.

The Hawks led 4-0 10 minutes into the game and never let up. Brent Rovianek and Aman Mann scored twice each while Ian Rasmussen, Andrew Stenberg and Tanner Petitt added goals in the Horizon rout.

The Horizon defense also completely shut down anything Catlin Gabel tried to do offensively. Horizon goalkeeper Jordan Anderson was left without much to do, saving only one weak shot in the second half. Catlin Gabel's two best chances came at the end of the first half, but both sailed over the goal.

"We have that strong defense and now they are pushing up," Horizon coach Oscar Stenberg said.

Up front, Stenberg, Rovianek, Mann and Sarah Clark coordinated the Horizon attack, leaving Catlin Gabel in a constant scramble to keep up. Even when the Hawks substituted in their own backups and JV players, the onslaught continued.

While the second-stringers may not have accounted for any goals, they kept the pressure on and had several good chances broken up at the last second. The Hawks host Trout Lake Wednesday, looking to avenge a loss from last week in which the Hawks were missing several starters.

The HRV boys played at Sunset Monday night and suffered their second defeat in a row, falling 1-0 to the Apollos. n The Eagle girls lost 3-1 at Aloha, with Emily Ing scoring the lone HRV goal on a penalty kick.

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213.
