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).

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
