Travis Pittman rushed for 70 yards and two touchdowns but it wasn’t enough in Horizon Christian Academy’s 24-12 loss to Creekside Christian on Saturday at Bennett Park.

The Warriors (0-2) outgained Creekside, 197-185, on offense but committed six turnovers (five fumbles, one interception) and had a punt blocked.

"The boys played very hard," Horizon head coach Charles Wiggins said. "This was a game that we could have won if we hadn’t made the mistakes."

Michael Walker shined with three catches for 67 yards and seven tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery on defense.

"The team has improved tremendously from the first game of the season," Wiggins said. "We have to work on the penalties and our giveaways. If we do that, we will be very competitive."

Horizon returns to action Saturday against Hearts Academy.
