It took a little while, but the Hanford boys soccer team eventually wore down the Southridge defense, posting a 3-0 Mid-Columbia Conference victory Tuesday in Richland.

Mario Zarate scored off an assist from Will Eldred in the 35th minute, and then added a second goal coming out of halftime in the 50th.
