The visiting Colony girls and boys soccer teams swept Nikiski on Thursday in Northern Lights Conference play.

The Knights won the girls game 3-0 as Nikiski fell to 0-2-1. A score in the boys game was not available as the Clarion went to press.

The Colony girls scored twice in the first half and once in the second half for the win.

“I thought we had some pretty outstanding play from our goalie Rachel Thompson,” Nikiski coach Mandy Adair said. “She had four or five spectacular saves that really kept us in the game.”

But Adair would have given the player of the game for Nikiski to Brianna Vollertson.

“She really stepped up big on defense and helped shut down the attack on that side,” Adair said. “She helped keep players around her calm, too.”

The coach also liked what she saw from Zykiah Cooney and Nataliyah Davis at forward.

“Never once did the girls put their heads down,” Adair said. “They kept working hard. That’s all you can ask for.”

Nikiski hosts Colony in another conference matchup today.

Homer boys 4, Houston 0

The Mariners improved to 2-0 with a shutout win over the visiting Hawks on Thursday in NLC play.

All of Homer’s strikes came in the first half. Just 30 seconds in, Jake Worsfold scored. Then in the fifth minute, Quinn Daugharty, assisted by Flynn Bloom, found the back of the net.

In the 14th minute, Bloom assisted again, this time to Drew Brown. In the 32nd minute, Max Mangue finished up the scoring on an assist from Kenneth Schneider.

Homer girls 1, Houston 1
