Kenai boys soccer tops Wasilla

The visiting Kenai Central boys soccer team defeated Wasilla 2-0 on Thursday in nonconference action. The Kardinals move to 3-1 overall.

“The guys were definitely looking good,” Kenai coach Shane Lopez said. “The defense held strong.”

Aidan Milburn had the clean sheet in net, while Lopez credited Koda Poulin and Wade James with strong games on defense.

James Baisden scored in the first half for Kenai, while Leif Lofquist gave the Kardinals more breathing room in the second half.

Colony boys 4, Soldotna 0

The visiting Stars fell to 3-1 overall with the Thursday nonconference loss in a pouring, cold rain.

Soldotna coach Erik Dolphin said the Stars were able to keep it to 1-0 at the half.

“They’re very talented and well-coached,” Dolphin said of Colony. “They put it to us in the second half. We played defense most of the time.”

Dolphin said the back line of Aiden Willets, Tyler Johnson and Zac Buckbee held up well under all the pressure.

The SoHi coach said the Knights triple-marked Stars scoring threat Josh Hieber and nobody else could step up and find the net.

Colony girls 5, Soldotna 1

The visiting Stars lost a Thursday nonconference match to the Knights to fall to 2-1-1.

Soldotna’s lone goal was a corner kick taken by Sierra Kuntz. Lily Coon got the ball to Katie Delker for the goal.
