The Crimson Bears routed host Wasilla 6-0. The win was also Juneau's 10th shutout this season.

"It was a good trip," JDHS co-coach Sandi Wagner said. "We're getting some injured players back and able to produce, which is good to see."

Juneau-Douglas scored four goals in the first half to put the game away early.

Clarissa Suson put the team on the board nine minutes in off Sarah Christianson's assist.

Rochele Rodman then scored in the 17th minute off Brittany Lehnhart's pass.

Christianson then netted a tally of her own when she gathered Talisa Rhea's rebound and put JDHS ahead 3-0.

Christianson, a junior assisted on Marita Rodriguez' goal in the 30th minute to end the first half's scoring.

In the second half, Kristin Jorgensen scored in the 43rd minute, and Rodriguez scored her second goal of the game, off a Christianson assist.

Though the team played without leading scorer Margaret Sekona, who was injured in Thursday's win over Colony, JDHS received solid contributions from throughout its lineup.

"One disadvantage was Margaret got hurt, but other players stepped up," Wagner said. "Marita stepped up. Clarissa got her first goal."

Juneau-Douglas (11-0-2) outshot the Warriors 21-1 in the win as goalkeeper Kayla Walton didn't need to make a save.

The Crimson Bears have been on a relentless pace this season. The team has allowed just three goals, one of which was an own goal, while generating 55 goals.

JDHS ends the regular season this weekend with two games at Ketchikan. The Crimson Bears need just one tie to qualify for the state tournament.

In two previous meeting, JDHS defeated the Kings by a combined score of 14-0.
