CIA soccer moves its record to 15-0

Posted: September 26, 2013 - 10:39pm

The Cook Inlet Academy coed soccer team opened the Alaska Christian School Athletic Association soccer tournament at the Kenai Soccer Complex with a pair of wins Thursday.

The Eagles topped Wasilla Lake Christian 4-0 and Lumen Christi 4-0 to improve to 15-0 on the season.

There are five varsity teams in the tournament — CIA, Wasilla Lake, Lumen Christi, Birchwood Christian and Holy Rosary. The teams play a round robin Thursday and Friday, seeding everybody for Saturday’s championship round.

Saturday, the No. 2 and 3 seeds play at 10 a.m. for a spot against No. 1 in the 2 p.m. championship. Nos. 4 and 5 play a consolation game at noon.

CIA continues with round-robin play today at the complex with a noon game against Birchwood Christian and a 6 p.m. game against Holy Rosary.

Holy Rosary comes into today at 2-0 after beating Birchwood Christian 4-0 and Lumen Christi 5-0. Holy Rosary couldn’t make it to Kenai on Thursday, so those games actually were played earlier in the week. Thursday’s other score was Wasilla Lake 2, Birchwood 2.

In the CIA victory over Wasilla Lake, Timmy Smithwick started the scoring in the 13th minute on an assist from Ashleigh Hammond. Andrew Hammond scored in the 19th minute, then Smithwick closed the half by putting in a corner kick from Connor Leaf. Leaf had the lone goal of the second half.

Against Lumen, Noah Leaf scored in the 10th minute, then Connor Leaf scored in the 16th minute. Andrew Hammond notched a tally in the 23rd minute, while Smithwick closed the scoring in the 63rd minute.

CIA coach Kenny Leaf said the team was glad to welcome back goalie Noah Nelson, who had been out a little over two weeks with a concussion. Nelson kept a clean sheet in both matches.
