The visiting Homer soccer teams swept Nikiski on Tuesday.

The Homer boys won 5-1, while the Mariners girls notched a 5-0 decision.

The games also kept clarifying the postseason picture in the Northern Lights Conference Southern Division.

The Homer boys are now 1-3 in the division and 6-7 overall. Homer can clinch the division No. 4 seed at the conference tournament if it can beat Seward at 2 p.m. in Homer on Saturday.

The Nikiski boys fall to 1-9-1 overall and 0-4 in the division.

On the girls side, Homer is 8-5 overall and 2-2 in the division. If the Mariners beat Seward on Saturday at noon in Homer, the Mariners go in as the division No. 3 seed.

The Nikiski girls are 4-8 and 1-3 in the division and can get the No. 4 seed by winning at Seward at 4 p.m. Friday.

In the Tuesday boys game, Simon Dye had a hat trick to put him over 20 goals for the season, according to Homer coach Warren Waldorf. Charles Rohr and Charlie Menke also scored.

Waldorf said midfielders Oliver Beck, Nouredine Mama, Rohr and Dye are playing great, but the coach continues to worry about how his young team will do against the more mature teams that await.

In the girls game, Uliana Reutov and Sam Draves each scored twice, while Desiree Clary added a tally. Ali McCarron had the shutout in goal.

Homer coach Mike Tozzo said his team was sluggish in taking a 1-0 lead after the first half.

“They regrouped and the seniors took control and we put four more goals in the net,” Tozzo said. “They played really well in the second half, they way we need to be playing going into the conference tournament.”

Tozzo said Clary played in her first game of the season. He said it was great to see her score and added she will be a good asset going forward.
