The Juneau-Douglas High School girls' soccer team continued its impressive undefeated streak, even though the Crimson Bears had a surprise come there way.
Instead of playing Service, the JDHS girls took on Bartlett. Though the opponent was different, the result remained the same as the Bears knocked off the Golden Bears, 5-0.
"We played very strong defensively and in the midfield, the midfielders played to the forwards really well," JDHS co-coach Colin Barton said. "We dominated in the midfield and that's what gave us the opportunities. We scored five times, unfortunately we missed a number of goal-scoring opportunities and that's what concerns me a little bit."
The Bears took a 3-0 halftime lead and tacked on two more to seal the win.
Juneau-Douglas, the defending state champions, hasn't lost a contest since the 2003 season.
"We did dominate in the midfield, however, Bartlett didn't give away the midfield easily," Barton said. "They actually fought very hard, they competed very well. It was good for our kids. I was very pleased."
No statistics from the game were made available.
The Crimson Bears' boys team had no problems with the defending state champs, blasting Service 11-0.
Juneau-Douglas took a 5-0 lead at the half and never looked back as a multitude of Bears scored goals in the win.
Mark Rainery led the way for JDHS with a hat trick. Jamaal Bailey, Matt Kern, Carlos Cuellar, Kabil Seesan, Danny Hernandez and Colin Flynn all scored goals.
Dylan Ashe had three assists while Cuellar and Levi Wanstall had two assists each in the win.
Both the boys and girls face West Anchorage today and South Anchorage on Saturday.
