FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - After day one of the state soccer championships, the division two North Pole Patriots girls’ team has prevailed in their objective to move forward in their pursuit of the state title.

The Patriots played the Ketchikan Kings in their first game and it was a sweet victory for North Pole not only taking a win, but claiming a shut out victory with 5 goals. Tomorrow the girls from North Pole will face the Juneau-Douglass Crimson Bears for the semifinals. That game will be played at Service High School at 1 p.m.

As for the two division one girls’ teams, West Valley wound up with a loss early in the day, after a close game with South Anchorage. The Wolfpack takes a 1-2 defeat and finds waiting for their next opponent to be decided much like the Malemutes. Lathrop also suffered a loss coming from the Service Cougars their game ending with 1 goal for Service.

All three schools sent boys teams to state as well, however all three have fallen in the first round. In division two soccer, North Pole managed a goal against Grace Christian but the Grizzlies grabbed 4 in total, taking the win by 3. The Patriots will play Palmer at West Anchorage in an 11 a.m. consolation game tomorrow. Looking at division one boys, the Wolfpack played a 9 a.m. game against Colony which went to the knights in a 3 and 0 loss for West Valley. Their consolation game is at 1 p.m. in Eagle River against an opponent that is yet to be determined. Finally, for the Malemutes, the game they had with South Anchorage sadly did not go their way with a close 2-1 win for the wolverines. Lathrop will join the Wolfpack in Eagle River tomorrow taking on the namesake high school at 9 a.m.
