Facing off with McLoughlin is never an easy task. And the La Grande boys soccer team found that out the hard way on Thursday.

Hosting the No. 5-ranked Pioneers, LHS lost 5-0 to drop to 3-4 overall and 2-2 in the Greater Oregon League. 

McLoughlin (6-0, 3-0) got on the board just 15 minutes into the contest on a hard header past the LHS keeper.

Six minutes later the Pioneers added to the lead on a goal from the right side of the field, followed by another goal in the 35th minute.

Mac-Hi got a late goal before the half and added one more later in the second half to close out the win.

A late corner kick by the Tigers proved unsuccessful.

The Pioneers have allowed just three goals this year.

The road doesn’t get any easier for LHS next week.

The Tigers will host No. 4-ranked Ontario Thursday. starting at 4 p.m. OHS defeated LHS 3-0 earlier this year.
