GIRLS SOCCER
Congratulations to the Girls Soccer Team on defeating San Tan Foothills on Tuesday with a final score of 6-0.  Abby Brislan, Sam Garcia, and Kaitlyn Isom scored two goals each.  Go, Eagles!

BOYS SOCCER
The boys continued their unbeaten start to the season (6-0-1) with a comprehensive defeat of San Tan Foothills.  Horizon Honors played their best soccer to date going 6-0 at half time. The midfield, led by Loren Ferguson, controlled the game with patient and intelligent play. This, combined with deadly finishing, three goals each from Will Goff and Ryan Holguin along with goals from Daniel Haros and Kieran Andrew, enabled Horizon to cruise to a comfortable victory with every player in the squad making important contributions.
