PENDLETON - The Pendleton boys soccer team played to a scoreless tie with La Grande Friday, but dropped to Mac-Hi in the Pendleton Soccer Jamboree.
Pendleton was out-shot on goal 11-4 against La Grande, but senior-goalkeeper Scott Warhol had a key block on a La Grande penalty kick according to Pendleton head coach Dan Riley to keep the game scoreless.
