CIA soccer moves to Borealis semis

Noah Castenholz had a hat trick in the first half and the Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team defeated Holy Rosary Academy 7-1 to open up the Borealis Conference championships in Palmer on Thursday.

The Eagles actually went down 1-0 in the game, but showed why they are the tournament’s top seed in coming back with six unanswered goals. Abe Henderson scored twice for CIA, while Jeremy Dillingham and Lacie Sorhus each added a goal.

The Eagles play in the semifinals today against Susitna Valley, 2-1 winners over Birchwood Christian on penalty kicks, at 12:30 p.m. The other semi features Delta Junction, 3-0 winners over Nenana, against Tri-Valley, 4-3 winners over Lumen Christi.

Holy Rosary Academy had earned the right to play CIA by defeating Our Lady of the Valley 4-1.
