The Service Cougars scored three straight goals Wednesday, including a highlight-reel strike from Santiago Escobar, to grab a 3-1 nonconference soccer win over the Juneau boys.

Captain Azzam Azzam opened the scoring at Service High with a header in the 17th minute. Escobar scored early in the second half on a bending shot from a difficult angle, and Gunner Rodgers scored from close range a few minutes later to give Service a 3-0 lead.

Juneau finally got a shot past Cougars goalie Cooper Bailey-Parsons with 10 minutes remaining.
