The Nikiski girls and boys soccer teams were swept by Grace Christian at the Dome on Monday in Anchorage.

The Nikiski girls lost 5-0.

“I think we came out slow to start the game,” Nikiski coach Mandy Adair said. “In the second half we picked it up a bit more.

“Grace is a strong team. They have some skilled players that exposed some of our weaknesses. It helps me to see that so I can make changes.”

Nikiski is now 1-1-1 this season. All the games were at The Dome, and none were qualifiers for the conference tournament, so Adair said the experience has been invaluable.

Adair said Taylor Calderwood had a solid game in the midfield. The coach also like the play of senior stopper Koey Dixon.

“We had some quality combo plays that we will definitely be able to build on,” Adair said. “Our defense communicated well, they just had some breakdowns. Once we have some time out on the field, we can fix those things.”

The Grizzlies boys notched a 5-1 victory. Doogun Seater had the lone goal for the Bulldogs in the game.
