High school football teams from Soldotna and Nikiski are headed to Chugiak this weekend for the ASAA First National Bowl — the state’s football championship games.
Nikiski will attempt to repeat as the small-schools state champion with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff against Eielson at Chugiak High School.
Following that game, Soldotna plays Homer for the medium-schools title, with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
We wish both squads the best of luck. And we also send our congratulations, because win or lose on Saturday, we’re proud of what they’ve accomplished this season.
