Horizon Christian School's boys soccer team opened its District 5 season Thursday with a 7-5 road win at City Christian of Portland. The win brings the team to 2-3 overall (1-0 in league).
The game was quite a turnaround from the first week of the season, when Horizon lost 6-2 to City at the Trout Lake tournament. In the Sept. 8 match, the Hawks had no answer for City’s front-line players and had trouble consistently stringing together any offense.
City (3-2-1, 1-1) had similar offensive success on Thursday, but this time around the Hawks were able to answer the Lions’ goals with tallies of their own. Sophomore Jared Davis scored three goals to lead Horizon’s offense.
Horizon coach Rick Whitaker said his team's resiliency was the key to the win.
“City scored two quick goals, right at the start,” Whitaker said. “Our kids battled back. It was a good game, a tough, tough game.
“There were a lot of kids who came home sore and bruised.”
Horizon plays 4:15 p.m. Monday at league co-leader North Clackamas Christian (2-4, 2-0).
