The Eielson Ravens saw on Saturday that the Nikiski Bulldogs have a short memory.
The Ravens lost 35-20 in a battle of the top two Greatland Conference high school football teams, and the contest at Buck Nystrom Field on Eielson Air Force Base also was a rematch of last year’s small-schools state final.
The Ravens, in 2012, defeated the Bulldogs in a regular-season game in Nikiski and in the state championship matchup at Chugiak High School. The Bulldogs remembered both of those outcomes before Saturday’s first meeting of the season between the Greatland rivals.
