Lewis scores goal, adds assists for Seattle in NW Premier League
May 21, 2018Fresh off a phenomenal college soccer career, Anchorage’s Ariela Lewis has moved on to play in the Northwest Premier League.
No surprise, she has made an immediate impact.
Lewis notched a goal and assist in just her second game to lead the Seattle Stars to a 2-0 win over the Washington Timbers in Tukwila, Washington.
The game was a rematch of last year’s final in the Northwest Premier League, an elite adult women’s soccer league prepares for its third season of play.
Lewis, of Dimond High fame, assisted on the first goal in the 23rd minute. It was 2-0 in the 44th when the Alaskan turned scorer herself.
Lewis wrapped up her career last fall at Alabama State University, where as a senior she led the NCAA D1 Southwestern Athletic Conference with 12 goals and finished second with 26 points in 20 games.
She finished with a 143 career points on 57 goals and 29 assists.
