The Tyrone-Bellwood Lady Eagles soccer team lost their season opener to a talented Hollidaysburg team 5-0 on Tuesday.

The Lady Eagles played tough throughout the game but struggled to get shots in the net. Hollidaysburg was also able to take advantage of the depleted Tyrone defense to score three in the first half and two in the second.
