Two Harbors got off to a slow start to its 2019 season with shut out losses to Duluth Marshall and Heritage Christian Academy.

The Agates allowed two goals in the first half to the defending Section 7A champions of the game Thursday, Aug. 22, first to Baamlek Haugen and the Maren Friday. Duluth Marshall’s Gianna Kneepkens scored twice in the second half to give the Hilltoppers a 4-0 win in Duluth.

Heritage Christian Academy shut out the Agates 2-0 in a home game Saturday, Aug. 24.

Two Harbors had hoped to pick up their first win against Hibbing-Chisholm — a team the Agates beat in the 2018 section tournament — but the game Monday, Aug. 26, was postponed because of bad weather.
