A 7-0 win at home over Nikiski just two weeks ago left the Soldotna girls soccer team feeling like the Stars squads that have been to the state tournament in each of the past six years.
Saturday, playing at a cold, blustery, natural-grass Nikiski field, Soldotna picked up the 3-0 win, but it was the Bulldogs making strides in closing the gap to the mighty Stars.
“I couldn’t be prouder of these girls,” said Nikiski coach Troy Zimmerman. “This was a measuring stick for us, and we were within striking distance all game.”
