The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team won the Tri-Valley Soccer Tournament on Saturday.
The Eagles moved to 9-2 overall on the season by topping Delta on penalty kicks in the championship.
CIA had lost to Delta, the defending Borealis Conference champions, earlier in the year, but in the 65th minute Noah Leaf put the Eagles up 1-0 on a booming free kick from about 55 yards out.
But Delta equalized with four minutes left. The teams were the scoreless in 10 minutes of overtime.
Leaf scored and Brady Hammond missed as the Eagles trailed 2-1 after two rounds. But Hammond, also the goalie, wouldn’t allow a goal on the next three penalty kicks. James Andersen and Adara Warren scored to give CIA the win.
CIA also had to play Saturday morning in the semis against Holy Rosary Academy. The Eagles took a 2-0 lead by the fifth minute on goals from Leaf and Breonna Delon, but Holy Rosary had the game tied by the 10th minute. Jiabao Leaf put CIA ahead in the 25th, but Holy Rosary again tied in the 30th.
But Delon would strike again in the 65th, and Noah Leaf would add a goal on a rebound off a penalty, to put CIA in the finals.
Thursday, CIA opened in the tourney by topping Susitna Valley 4-1 on a hat trick by Leaf and a goal by Hunter Moos.
Then Friday, the Eagles topped Birchwood Christian 2-1 on two goals from Leaf, assists from Jiabao Leaf and clutch saves from Hammond.
Hammond was named the most valuable goalkeeper at the tournament, while Noah Leaf was the most valuable male player. CIA also won the sportsmanship award.
