PHILOMATH - Philomath ended a five-game losing streak to Astoria in a big way Thursday afternoon, as the Warriors defeated the Fishermen 5-0 in a nonleague boys soccer game at Philomath.
"It was disappointing," said Astoria coach Bill Patterson. "We just wilted in the heat. It was in the high 80s or 90s there, and we just weren't ready. (The Warriors) were the better team, and it was a good game for us, in terms of being a wakeup call."
Astoria had won five straight over Philomath going back to 2002.
"We look forward to getting another look at Philomath in the playoffs," Patterson said.

Fresh off a 2-2 tie against Molalla Wednesday, the Gulls ended up even at North Marion Thursday, in a 1-1 tie with the Huskies in a nonleague contest.
Seaside scored the first goal two minutes into the second half, when a shot by April Cockcroft glanced off the crossbar and into the goal, off a free kick from 25 yards out.
A failed clear attempt by the Gulls later in the half resulted in a North Marion goal from close range. Seaside keeper Miranda Olson had seven saves.
