The Soldotna girls extended their perfect soccer season with a 6-0 triumph over Seward Tuesday afternoon in Seward. The Stars improved to 11-0 overall and 3-0 in the Northern Lights Conference Southern Division.

Whitney Wortham continued her recent hot streak with a hat trick, scoring goals in the 10th and 15th minutes of the first half and completing the feat just a minute into the second half.

Alyssa Wolfe added a pair of goals — in the 25th and 48th minutes — and Taylor Wilson scored as well. Abi Tuttle, Andrea Krol, Reagan Schoessler, Miranda Wolfe and Alex Ashe all tallied at least one assist.

SoHi coach Jimmy Love said he was pleased to record the win, but ultimately, regular season wins do not hold much significance for the Stars right now.

“The regular season is just prep work for the region tournament,” Love said. “There are still things we need to focus on.”

Maddie Kindred and Darion Derflinger combined for the shutout in goal.

Soldotna boys 4, Seward 1

The Stars grabbed a Northern Lights Conference win in Seward to move to 10-2 overall for the season and 3-0 in the Southern Division.

SoHi scored in the 25th minute to break the scoreless tie with a strike from Dylan Ackerman, who received an assist from Charalambos Asimakopoulos. Ty Fenton and Jeremy Godfrey added goals in the 33rd and 62nd minutes, respectively, with assists from Asimakopoulos, who ended up with three helping touches total. Ryan Winters scored with an assist from Dylan Kuntz in the 65th minute.

Seward scored its lone goal with about 10 minutes left on a penalty kick, after a SoHi player was called for a hand ball in the goalie box.

Kenai girls 4, Nikiski 1

Hannah Drury and Cori Holmes each scored twice to give the Kardinals an NLC win over the Bulldogs Tuesday evening in Nikiski. Kenai is now 9-1-1 overall.

Drury tallied her scores in the 36th and 64th minutes with assists from Emily Halstead and Heidi Perkins, respectively, while Holmes notched her goals in the 59th and 80th minutes, with both assists from Lara Creighton.

Rachel Thompson stopped the Kards from blanking the Bulldogs with a late goal in the 78th minute

Kenai travels to play Seward on Friday and will end the regulars season with a crucial matchup against Soldotna on Saturday.

Kenai boys 0, Nikiski 0

The Kardinals and Bulldogs played to a scoreless tie Tuesday night in Nikiski. Kenai moved to 5-4-2 overall, and will face Soldotna in a crucial NLC season finale Saturday in Kenai.

Kenai coach Joel Reemstma said Kards goalie Wren Norwood had three solid saves shots on goal, but early pressure from Nikiski in the opening 20 minutes made it look like more.

“The first twenty minutes belonged to them,” Reemstma said. “The home side came out ready to go, and we had better chances, I thought, but had golden ones we missed.”

Reemstma said his squad was missing midfielder Ean Atchley due to illness.

Homer girls 5, Kodiak 0

The home team Mariners secured a shutout win over the Bears Tuesday night, improving to 4-8-2 overall and 2-2 in the south this year.

The Mariners will face Soldotna today at 4 p.m. at SoHi.

Homer boys 4, Kodiak 0

A pair of second-half goals by Flynn Bloom helped the Mariners to a shutout win over NLC opponent Kodiak Tuesday evening in Homer.

The win boosted Homer to a 4-4-3 overall mark this season and 2-2 in the Southern Division.

Charles Rohr opened the scoring with a goal in the 23rd minute, getting an assist from Ren Carroll to put Homer up 1-0.

Bloom struck eight minutes into the second half for his first goal, then added his second in the 75th minute to build Homer’s lead to 3-0. Bloom then assisted on a goal by Quinn Alward in the final minute of regulation to seal the win. Eric Hill earned the shutout in net with seven saves for Homer.

The Mariners travel to visit the Soldotna Stars today at 6 p.m.
