The Kenai Central girls and boys soccer teams took on the newly-formed Kodiak squads Friday and Saturday with success.

The Kenai girls won Friday’s nonleague contest 13-0 and Saturday’s Northern Lights Conference game 16-0, while the Kardinal boys won both days with identical scores of 7-0.

Cori Holmes led the Kards with six goals and five assists through both games, while teammate Hannah Drury scored six times as well. Lara Creighton added three goals and two assists and Cassie Holmes, Heidi Perkins and Sarah Every notched two apiece. Kenai goalkeeper Allie Steinbeck was credited with the shutouts in both games.

Closer to home, the Soldotna boys beat Nikiski 3-1 on Friday. The Stars got goals from Tommy Flores in the eighth minute and Bos Asimakopoulos at the end of the first half for a 2-0 lead.

The Bulldogs brought the lead back down to one with a direct kick strike in the second half, but Asimakopoulos added the insurance goal late in the game to seal the win.

The Homer girls fell to Juneau 4-0 on Friday under snowy skies.

Saturday, the Thunder Mountain girls claimed a 1-0 win over Homer, after playing to a scoreless draw with the Mariners on Thursday.

Kenai Central and Soldotna will play host to a soccer jamboree Friday and Saturday, with all Peninsula girls squads facing off at Kenai and boys at SoHi. Games will consist of 20-minute scrimmages that will not count as official games.
