GIRLS PREP SOCCER
Service 4, East 0
The Service Cougars scored twice in the opening 12 minutes Saturday to convincingly clinch a berth in the state soccer tournament with a 4-0 blanking of East.
Leah Camery scored the first of her two goals in third minute of the Cook Inlet Conference match at The Dome, taking a pass from Shelby Namen.
Zoe Bailey's goal in the 12th minute gave the Cougars a big early lead that propelled them to next week's state tournament.
Service will join Dimond and South as the CIC's entries in the eight-team tournament. Service's win eliminated Chugiak from the playoff picture.
Camery added her second goal early in the second half and Aislinn Waite, benefitting from Haleigh Van Allen's third assist, completed the scoring in the 65th minute. Trysten Bailey recorded the shutout.
Chugiak 7, Eagle River 0
Tristyn Hall posted a hat trick Saturday, helping the Chugiak girls soccer team close the CIC regular season with a 7-0 win over Eagle River at The Dome.
Grace Ogden, Jessi Beverlin, Tori Fishburn and Holly Brehmer each added goals for the Mustangs, with Alexis Trombley earning a shutout.
