YUMA, Ariz. - Coming off a tie to arch-rival Cibola wasn't a sweet experience for the Gila Ridge Hawks.
In this case, they couldn't keep a two goal lead on them and wound up playing to a draw with the Raiders in overtime last week.
Down to their last match before Christmas break, the Hawks didn't want to see a repeat of their performance against the Raiders.
The Hawks got off to another good start, taking the 2-nil lead in the 1st half before hitting a lull going into halftime. The second half saw Gila Ridge make enough key plays to tack 2 more goals on the board; getting the 4-nil victory.
The Hawks next play in the Arizona Showcase tournament on December 28th.
