HRVHS boys soccer ties McLouglin

Hood River Valley High School varsity boys soccer team holds a 4-0-1 record after a 3-3 tie with McLoughlin on the road Wednesday evening. Jaime Frias had two goals and Joel Aberg had one in the game that started in dominant fashion for HRV with a 3-0 lead after the first half.

Coach Jaime Rivera says the team lost focus in the second half and let some questionable calls get the better of them. The Eagles play next vs. West Albany Sept. 21, noon at Westside and Wilsonville Sept. 26, 6 p.m. at HRVHS.

The JV boys team remains undefeated (5-0) after a 5-3 win this week against McLoughlin and the freshman boys are off to a solid start with a 4-0-1 record.

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
