South High Soccer Makes Move in Standings


by Jake Ryle

ANCHORAGE, Alaska--It's hard hitting the repeat button in soccer; however, the boys of South Anchorage High school did just that on Monday afternoon.

The Wolverines took a 1-0 advantage into halftime against the sixth ranked Eagle River Wolves. That advantage not only doubled, but quadrupled with goals scored in minute 48, 50, and 52.

Conor Gonzalez and Hayden Western notched the final two goals for the Wolverines. Western easily slotted a penalty kick into the right corner of the goal to increase the South lead to 4-0.

FINAL (boys soccer): South Anchorage 4, Eagle River 0

The following match showed equal displays of frustration and joy. The South High Lady Wolverines soccer team easily secured possession of the ball for a majority of the first half, but the team would only account for one goal before the whistle blew.

That goal came from a perfectly placed corner kick ball from Grace Connelly. From there, Callie Orizotti was set-up for a header just to the right of the goalkeeper--which gave South a 1-0 lead.

The Lady Wolverines would add an insurance goal about midway through the second half from Shelby Woolston.

FINAL (girls soccer): South Anchorage 2, Eagle River 1
