CIA coed soccer starts season with victory

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team opened its season by notching a 2-1 victory over Susitna Valley High School on Thursday in Borealis Conference play.

The Rams, the runner-up in the conference a year ago, started the scoring in the 17th minute after Addie Nelson and Linnaea Dohse had opportunities early for Cook Inlet. From there on out, CIA goalie Lucas Cragg would keep a clean sheet.

“He had a terrific game,” Eagles coach Kenny Leaf said. “He made important saves coming off the line.”

In the 25th minute, Hunter Moos won a ball, settled it and scored.

At halftime, Leaf told his team to keep possession of the ball and take advantage of the opportunities presented by that. In the 48th minute, the midfield switched the ball, then James Anderson found Dohse in the box for the winning goal.

Leaf said midfielders Addie Nelson, Sophie Nelson and Adara Warren were vital in helping the team keep possession.

CIA continues the road trip at Holy Rosary Academy in Anchorage today and Lumen Christi in Anchorage on Saturday.
