She scored 63 goals in high school and it didn’t take very long for Haleigh Van Allen of Anchorage to find the net in college.

In just her fourth game for Northern Arizona University the freshman forward scored in a 6-0 victory over Alabama State in NCAA D1 women’s action.

Van Allen, of Service High fame, scored from 35 yards out on a booming kick. She had missed high on a similar attempt only minutes earlier. This time she was on target.

She was last season’s Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year.
