Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The division two Juneau-Douglas High School: Yadaa.at Kalé Crimson Bears boys soccer team ran past the division one East Anchorage Thunderbirds 5-0 on Thursday for their second road win in as many days.
All five Crimson Bears goals came in the first half of play.
“I really just think we brought a lot of energy from the start,” JDHS assistant coach Tulio Fontanella said. “And we did a good job of playing easy soccer and putting it right on them, getting going early and getting the early goals and really shutting them down.”
JDHS junior Kean Buss scored the first goal, with an assist by senior Tias Carney; Carney scored unassisted; senior Sam Holst scored unassisted; Carney scored with an assist by S. Holst; and S. Holst scored with an assist by freshman Kai Ciambor.
“We got a chance to rotate some players in and to get some guys a little bit of rest in the second half once we got up,” Fontanella said. “Martin Holst played well and his brother Sam (Holst) played well too… Tias (Carney) played well… a couple guys up front scoring goals and playing well.”
