Hawks shut out Colton for victory

Horizon overcomes its own mistakes to get a 22-0 win


COLTON — The Horizon Christian High School football team didn’t play a perfect game in its West Valley game with Colton.

Far from it.

The Hawks had 170 penalty yards as well as a pair of end-zone turnovers.

For most teams, that would spell disaster.

But, thanks to its running game and stifling defense, those miscues didn’t seem to deter Horizon Christian at all.

The Hawks overcame their own miscues to power their way to a 22-0 win over Colton in a league game played Friday at Colton High School.

Colton dropped to 2-1 in league play and to 3-3 on the season with the setback. Horizon Christian improved to 3-1 in WVL games, putting the Hawks in second place in the league standings behind 4-0 Dayton.

In Friday’s win at Colton, Horizon Christian rushed for 293 yards on 43 carries. Junior Colton Cosner led the Horizon rushing attack with 119 yards on 11 carries. Senior Daniel Parsons added 91 yards on 13 carries and junior Michael Weber had 75 yards on 13 carries.

The Hawks got on the scoreboard early in the contest, as sophomore quarterback Sandis Chhay threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Parsons to give Horizon a 6-0 lead with 9 minutes and 42 seconds left in the first quarter.

Weber scored on a 25-yard run and Cosner added a two-point conversion run to up the lead to 14-0 with 6:55 remaining in the second quarter.

The Hawks got their final touchdown with 11:52 left in the game, when senior tight end Isaiah Hall pulled in a 15-yard TD pass from Chhay. A two-point conversion run by Parsons made the final score 22-0.

For the game, Chhay completed three of 12 pass attempts for 42 yards.

For the Horizon defense, Weber, senior Brian Satterwhite and senior Parker Belan each had an interception. Cosner recovered a Colton fumble. Satterwhite paced the team with 14 total tackles.

The Hawks will be back in action Friday when they face Gervais in a league game starting at 7 p.m. at Horizon Christian High School.
