What stat best sums up the 16-0 record of Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team?

Timmy Smithwick has now scored 49 goals for the Eagles this season, while CIA has given up just seven goals.

The Eagles improved to 16-0 on Thursday with a 4-0 victory at Lumen Christi in Anchorage.

Smithwick scored four times, finding the net in the first, 21st, 24th and 62nd minutes. The goal in the 21st minute came off a rebound on a shot by Riley Smithwick.

“He’s just a natural finisher,” CIA coach Kenny Leaf said of Timmy Smithwick. “I thought his brother, Robbie Smithwick, was the most natural finisher I had ever seen, but then Timmy came along and picked up where Robbie left off, and then some.”

Brady Hammond played in goal for CIA, while Noah Leaf, Riley Smithwick, Ashleigh Hammond and Kendra Brush made the shutout happen on defense.

The Eagles go on the road to face Wasilla Lake Christian at noon Saturday and Holy Rosary Academy at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Kincaid Park in Anchorage.
