Tuesday afternoon the Cowgirls were shut out for the fifth time in six games as the host Hood River Valley Eagles rolled to a 10-0 win over Crook County.

"We've got more development that needs to happen fundamentally," Crook County head coach Destanie Johnson said following the match. "But, no doubt, that it will happen. It's just going to take some time."

The Cowgirls trailed 8-0 at the half as Hood River Valley controlled the match.

After building the big lead, the Eagles slowed the match down in the second half, keeping control of the ball, but not pushing it forward as much.

"It was a lot of chase and being reactive versus being proactive," Johnson said of her team's effort.

With the win the Eagles improved to 2-4 overall and 2-0 in conference play. Hood River Valley is currently tied with The Dalles for first place in the Intermountain Conference.

Meanwhile, the Cowgirls fell to 0-6 overall and 0-2 in conference play.
