The Huskies lost 6-0 to the speedy fifth-ranked Stayton girls soccer team at home Sept. 11.

"They caught us by surprise right away," said Coach Ramiro Santana. "We came out a little on the lazy side. Within the first two minutes, they scored the first goal."

Stayton had the advantage in speed and dribbling, Santana said. Stayton scored again two minutes, four minutes and eight minutes later.

Santana had moved defender Sydney Mauer to midfield for the game, and he quickly adjusted her back to defense, helping slow down the Stayton attack. Stayton scored one more time in the minute 32 to lead 5-0 at halftime.

The Huskies held Stayton to one goal in the second half, Santana said. "If we actually played like that in the first half, that would've been great.

Torree Hawken and Kate Hawken had three or four shots on goal, Santana said. "Our goalie is just amazing, stopping shots left and right."

Moira Curtis had 21 saves on the game, he said, but when another team gets so many shots, some will go in.

Sweet Home (0-3, 0-4) was scheduled to host Cascade (1-2, 1-4) Tuesday and will travel to Sisters (0-4, 1-5) on Friday and Newport (2-1, 3-2) next Tuesday.
