Malia Miller

Juneau’s Malia Miller continues to tear it up in the NWAC – no matter which soccer team she plays for.

The Peninsula College newcomer had a dazzling debut after notching a goal and two assists for a career-high four points in an 11-0 win over Centralia in Tukwila, Washington.

Miller racked up two assists inside the first 13 minutes to kickstart an early 3-0 lead. She scored in the 34th minute.

The Bellevue College transfer has built a reputation as a reliable scorer in the NWAC with 21 points in 18 career games on five goals and 11 assists.

This was her fourth game with three points or more.

The former Gatorade Alaska Player of the Year out of Juneau-Douglas High ranked second in the league in 2019 in assists.
