Alaska Crowns 2009 High School Football Championships

Kenai and Soldotna wrote another chapter in their rivalry Saturday.

Three weeks after being blown out by three-time defending champion Soldotna 52-27 in the regular season finale, Kenai (10-1) bounced back and beat the Stars 21-10 on Saturday to claim the 2009 Alaska Small Schools high school football championship.

The title is the fifth for Kenai during this decade. The Kardinals won four straight championships before Soldotna (8-3) began its run of three straight in 2006. According to the Anchorage Daily News, Soldotna hadn't lost to a small schools opponent since the 2005 season.

That opponent? Kenai, of course.

In the Large Schools championship, Bartlett's defense keyed the Golden Bears 21-3 win against Chugiak. The Anchorage Daily News reports that Bartlett forced five turnovers.
