One week removed from a close loss to Eielson, Nikiski pummeled the Valdez Buccaneers in a 48-6 Greatland Conference win Friday evening at Nikiski.
Senior running back Stephen Hartley rushed for 247 yards and four touchdowns, and sophomore teammate Christian Riddall put up 136 rushing yards, including an 81-yard kick return late in the third quarter, and had one touchdown catch.
“We were determined to stop the run in the middle, the gaps were filled, and we were disciplined,” Riddall said. “A lot of young guys were rotated in, so that was good to see.”
