The White River High Hornets slipped to 0-2 on the young football season, falling 30-14 to the Lindbergh Eagles in Buckley.

Friday night’s contest saw the visitors score a pair of first-quarter touchdowns and another in the second, taking a 23-0 lead into intermission.

White River cracked the scoring column with 4:49 remaining in the third quarter. Luke Northam took a direct snap from center and crashed through the middle of the line for six points. Northam then lofted a pass to Michael Pedreira for the two-point conversion.

The Eagles added their fourth and final touchdown, going up 30-8, but the Hornets weren’t finished. White River mounted a six-play drive that covered 64 yards and was capped by a 30-yard scoring play from Northam to Pedreira. The conversion attempt was no good and the teams played a scoreless fourth quarter.

White River will be looking for its first victory of the Jeff Zenisek era Sept. 16. The Hornets hit the road to challenge the Foster Bulldogs.
