CIA has big weekend, moves up to No. 5 seed

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team went 2-0 on the weekend to move up to the fifth seed in the nine-team Borealis Conference tournament, which runs Thursday through Saturday.

The Eagles topped Holy Rosary Academy 8-0 in Anchorage on Friday and Lumen Christi 5-0 at the Kenai Soccer Complex on Saturday. Both games counted as double points in the standings because previous matches against the two schools did not happen due to wildfires.

Friday, captain Isaac Johnson scored four times to lead the Academy. Senior Annika Castenholz had the first goal of the game, burying a penalty kick four minutes in.

Also, freshman striker Noah Castenholz had two goals and two assists, and Tatum Rozak scored her first career goal and also added an assist. Lucas Cragg had the shutout in net for CIA.

Saturday, CIA honored seniors Linnaea Dohse, Annika Castenholz, Cragg and Denali Jackson.

Noah Castenholz and Isaac Johnson each had a pair of goals to lead CIA, while Linnaea Dohse celebrated senior day with a goal.

The Academy opens up play at the Borealis tourney, which is the state tourney for fall coed soccer in Alaska, with a game against No. 4 Birchwood Christian at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the MTA Events Center in Palmer.
