They are twins, so of course Aaliyah and Ariela Lewis of Anchorage do things the same way.

Like dominate college soccer.

The Alabama State University forwards each rank among the top five NCAA D1 active career scoring leaders, a historic accomplishment for one family.

Both former Dimond High players added to their totals in tonight’s 3-1 win over Mississippi Valley State during Southwestern Athletic Conference play in Montgomery, Alabama.

They got after it pretty early, too, with Ariela scoring on a pass from Aaliyah in the second minute of the game. Aaliyah netted her own goal in the 62nd minute.

In four seasons Aaliyah has accumulated 142 career points, which is No. 3 on the active career list.

She is second with 32 assists and has an outside shot at catching the leader with 36.

Aaliyah ranks fifth with 55 goals.

In goals per game, Ariela and Aaliyah are virtually tied at 0.73.

Together, they make up the country’s No. 1 scoring sister act in college soccer.
