Anchorage high school soccer report for April 17

boys soccer

West 1, East 0

West's Ahmed Niass notched the only goal Wednesday in a 1-0 Cook Inlet Conference victory over East at The Dome, helping the Eagles remain undefeated in league play.

West (6-0-0) misfired on numerous shots throughout the match, drilling the crossbar on a few occasions before finally breaking through with the game-winner from Niass with less than 10 minutes remaining. Niass tracked down a loose ball near the left goal post and crossed a shot into a wide-open right corner of the net.

"The goal was pretty awesome," said Niass, an exchange student from Senegal. "I saw the defender wasn't there, so I just moved around and hit it."

East failed to produce any scoring threats in the final minutes and fell to 2-3-0 in league play.
