The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team improved to 15-0 on the season with an 8-2 victory over Holy Rosary Academy on Saturday in Anchorage.

Riley Smithwick started the scoring for the Eagles in the second minute, while Timmy Smithwick scored in the 12th and Kate Zimmerman and Breonna Delon combined to score in the 38th minute.

But Holy Rosary scored twice before the close of the half for a 3-2 game.

“Holy Rosary has scored four goals against us,” CIA coach Kenny Leaf said. “That’s pretty good because we’ve allowed a total of nine goals.”

Riley Smithwick scored again just two minutes into the second half, then sent a cross to Timmy for a goal just two minutes later.

Johnny Smithwick, Connor Leaf and Andrew Hammond rounded out the scoring.

CIA plays in the Borealis Conference tournament, essentially the state tournament, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Palmer.
