CIA soccer nabs 1st win of 2019

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team picked up its first win of the 2019 season Thursday with a 5-3 score over Nenana at the Kenai Soccer Complex.

The Eagles and Lynx netted a combined six goals in a frantic first half, starting in the third minute with a strike from Noah Castenholz.

CIA took a 4-0 lead on goals from Isaac Johnson in the 10th minute, Linnaea Dohse in the 17th and Johnson again in the 24th. Johnson finished the day with two goals.

Nenana got one back in the 33rd minute but the Eagles returned the favor just three minutes later with a score from Annika Castenholz, leading to a 5-1 halftime lead for CIA.

A Nenana goal just a minute into the second half pulled the Lynx closer, and the Lynx tallied one last goal in the 80th minute, but it was too late for a comeback.

Eagles head coach Kenny Leaf praised the defensive efforts of Eddie Erickson and Landon Vyhmeister.

CIA returns Friday to face Su-Valley at 5 p.m. at the Kenai fields.
