Six different Skyview players scored as the visiting Panthers picked up their first victory of the season, a 6-0 triumph over Nikiski on Thursday.
“We just played solid,” said Skyview coach Ronnie Kier.
Amanda Millay, Jennifer Holland, Claudia Sohns, Joanna Graves, Nikki Rawson and Michaela Hutchison all found the back of the net for the Panthers, who travel to Kenai today at 4 p.m.
Nikiski boys 3, Skyview 1
Kenny Fagan scored on two headers as the Bulldogs won their second consecutive game.
Fagan’s first tally came off a corner kick from Wiley Bennett in the first half and he scored again when he headed in a rebound.
“The whole team played with a lot of heart,” said Nikiski coach Jim Coburn, who was pleased with the victory. “Especially against a skilled team like Skyview.”
Bennett capped the scoring in the second half when he scored on a direct kick.
Freshman goalkeeper Jordan Harrison made 13 saves for the Panthers, who host Ketchikan at 6 p.m. today.
“He probably played his best game,” Coburn said.
Ketchikan boys 2, Homer 1
Ketchikan broke a 1-1 halftime tie and escaped with a tight victory.
Mark Walsworth scored the Mariners’ lone goal late in the first half.
“We had good pressure in the second half,” said Homer coach Pam Fogg. “They were a long ball team.
“The teams that have beat us like to boot it, catch up.”
Homer hosts Grace at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
