Anchorage’s Erica Heil and the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University women’s soccer team capped a perfect showing in the California Pacific Conference with a league title.

The team didn’t just win all 10 games – eight during the regular season and two more in the postseason tournament.

The Eagles didn’t surrender a goal.

Heil, of Dimond High fame, is a pivotal piece to Embry-Riddle’s remarkable scoreless streak that actually predates conference play, going back to Sept. 12.

In all, the team is riding a 12-game shutout streak – a stretch of 1,092 minutes – and has held opponents scoreless in 16 of 19 games this season.

Heil is a sophomore starter as a midfielder/defender and plays an average of 60 minutes per game.

She played 82 minutes in the Cal Pac Conference championship game.

Embry-Riddle [17-3] will next play Saturday against Oklahoma’s University of Science and Arts in the first round of the NAIA national tournament in Prescott, Arizona.
