Two Alaskans are tied for second in goals on the nationally ranked Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University women’s soccer team in Prescott, Arizona.

Former South High teammates Megan Currier and Callie Orizotti have both bagged four goals apiece for the high-flying Eagles, who have posted a 10-2-2 record in NAIA play this year.

Currier, a freshman forward, has posted 4-3–11 totals and is tied on the team in points.

All four of her goals have come in the last five weeks. Before that she was setting up others.

She is one of the most accurate shooters, with 12 of 18 shots on goal. She converted her only penalty kick.

Orizotti, a sophomore midfielder, has collected 4-1–9 totals.

She scored her first goal in the second match of the season. A month later, she had three goals and an assist over a two-game span earlier this month.

What a difference a year makes as Orizotti has seen her points and goals totals more than quadruple.

Embry-Riddle has a three-game home stretch, starting with Saturday’s matchup against Antelope Valley, which is a half-game ahead of the Eagles in the league standings.

The California Pacific Conference playoffs begin Nov. 10 in Merced, California.
