Chugiak rallied with two goals in the second half, including Keaton Rasic's match- winner with about 15 minutes left, to edge Eagle River 3-2 in a Cook Inlet Conference soccer match Saturday at The Dome.
Eagle River led 2-1 at the half on goals by Ben Russell and Josh Overlander, but the Wolves couldn't hold off their nemesis.
"This has happened the last three times we've played," Eagle River coach Luke Almon said. "We've gone into the half with a one-goal lead and then we lose."
Chugiak's Brad Fussner scored twice to tie the match, and then Nathan Macalino helped set up the winning goal with a corner kick that bounced a couple times before landing about 10 yards from the net in front of Rasic, who hit the ball on a half volley into the net.
Chugiak improved to 3-1-1, while Eagle River remained winless in three matches. And the outcome left both coaches hoping that their team will break the habit that has developed when they meet each other -- for Chugiak, that means not falling behind, and for Eagle River, that means not surrendering a lead.
"It's a good rivalry," Chugiak coach George Campnell said.
Service 3, East 1
Codi Woodcock scored a goal and assisted on another as the Service Cougars beat the East Thunderbirds 3-1 in a Cook Inlet Conference boys soccer match at The Dome on Saturday.
Mathew Weinstein and Dane Goodman each contributed goals to help Service (2-1-2) to a three-goal lead.
Jaime Velasco snuck behind the Service defense for the lone goal for East (1-1-2).
"They didn't see me coming and I headed it in," said Velasco.
Dimond 4, West 0
Dimond goalkeeper Arturo Oberto recorded his third shutout of the season to lead the Lynx to a 4-0 victory over the West Eagles on Saturday at The Dome.
Alcides Thomas, Dylan Afusia and Matthew Nardella each scored, with Thomas tallying the first two goals.
West was missing two of its regular center defenders and lost its goalkeeper to an injury early in the second half.
"We capitalized on that and put away a few goals," said Dimond coach John Oliver.
