UMATILLA 9, FOUR RIVERS 0 — The Vikings traveled to Four Rivers on Saturday and came home with their second win of the season.

Jeffri Coria and Luis Castro both put in three goals each. Fernando Ramirez and Jose and Christian Alanis also scored one each.

“It took a while for the boys to settle,” said Umatilla coach Pedro Ortiz. “But after those first two goals, they were able to relax. In the second half, we made plenty of subs and let our younger players get more time and get used to high school-level soccer.”

Umatilla is now 2-4-1 overall and 1-1 in league play. They’ll host Irrigon (0-6, 0-1) on Friday.
