Delta coed soccer team tops CIA

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team lost 6-1 to Delta on Friday in Borealis Conference play at the Kenai Sports Complex.

While Holy Rosary Academy did not make it down to the peninsula for a Saturday game against the Eagles due to the Swan Lake Fire, Delta made it down Friday and actually played the Eagles in the rain.

CIA coach Kenny Leaf said his side did a good job of maintaining possession in the first half, but defensive errors in the seventh, 25th and 32nd minutes led to a 3-0 hole at halftime. Leaf said the Eagles did get scoring opportunities from Isaac Johnson, Linnaea Dohse and Lucas Cragg.

In the second half, Delta scored in the 42nd, 55th and 70th minutes to improve to 5-0 and drop CIA’s record to 0-2-1. The Academy did notch its first goal of the season when freshman Noah Castenholz beat a defender and blasted a goal into the top corner in the 53rd minute.

CIA now travels to Healy for the Tri-Valley Kickoff Tournament. The Eagles start by playing Su-Valley on Thursday and Birchwood Christian on Friday.
