The first football game played on White River High new turf proved unkind to the home Hornets, who were swamped Friday night by the visiting Fife Trojans.

The 45-0 loss served as the South Puget Sound League 2A opener for both teams. The Hornets are now 0-3, having also dropped contests to rival Enumclaw and Lindbergh. It has been a rough beginning for coach Joe Sprouse and his crew, who have been outscored 112-43.

Fife scored on the fifth play of Friday’s game, added a second touchdown on the fifth play of the second quarter and posted a third TD shortly before halftime. The Trojans built their lead through the second half as the White River offense was limited to punting the ball away or losing it on turnovers.

The Hornets will be looking for their first victory Friday night when they host Franklin Pierce. The contest will allow one of the teams to celebrate for the first time this season. The league foes enter the game with identical records: 0-1 in league play and 0-3 overall.
