The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer program picked up its first victory of the fall season Saturday with a 2-1 win over Lumen Christi.

Lumen opened the scoring early with a goal in the first minute, but the Eagles responded with two quick goals in succession. Breona Delon tied it in the sixth minute with an assist from Hunter Moos, and Moos tallied a goal of his own in the 14th to give CIA the lead.

CIA (1-3) held tough from there to the end to preserve the victory. After early-season losses to Delta Junction (4-1), Wasilla Lake (4-3) and Su Valley (4-2), Eagles head coach Kenny Leaf said the team is slowly starting to rediscover its groove.

“We’re rebuilding from last year after losing significant seniors,” Leaf said, referring to Borealis Conference Player of the Year Noah Leaf and conference Goaltender of the Year Brady Hammond, both of which graduated last year.
