The Chugiak Mustangs girls soccer team benefitted from a solid defensive effort and a pair of goals from sophomore forward Carson Head to blank their Eagle River neighbors 3-0 Monday at the Dome.

“It was really good teamwork, it was nice passing that led up to it,” Head said of her finishing goal, an against the grain effort from just outside the box in the second half. “I was pretty happy with it.”

Coach Paul Brehmer said it was a good first game for his squad, which featured five new players. “I thought our girls played a stronger game than last year.” He added that Eagle River played a strong game as well, especially new goalkeeper Jayden Nifong-Graves.

The Mustangs prevailed in the boys’ match, by a 1-0 margin, courtesy of a Remington Holtman first half goal.
