Perfection Denied...Twice...In Quarterfinal Round of Alaska High School Football Playoffs

Alaska High School Football Huddle

Two perfect seasons came to crashing halts Saturday in the opening round of the Alaska high school football playoffs.

In the Large Schools quarterfinal round, top-ranked and unbeaten Anchorage West was manhandled by North Pole 36-12. Ironically, it was North Pole that began the season as the #1 team in the big school classification. The Anchorage Daily News reports that the Patriots blew this one open in a three-minute span of the third quarter with three touchdowns.

On the Small Schools side of the equation, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner details the end of Eielson's season. The second-seeded Ravens lost their first game of the season 24-14 to Kodiak. The Bears entered the postseason with a 4-4 record.

The Anchorage Daily News recaps the four Small Schools quarterfinal games, as all four Northern Lights Conference teams advanced to the semifinals.
