With a win over a medium-schools opponent to open their season, the Nikiski Bulldogs are already looking like a favorite to win it all again.
The defending small-schools state champions ousted Thunder Mountain 42-19 on Saturday at Nikiski High School, using their feared Wing-T offense to near perfection.
“It bodes well for us, knowing we can play well at that level,” said Nikiski coach Ted Riddall. “That’s the whole point of playing at that level, so that when we get into the meat of our schedule, we’ve already competed against teams that are probably gonna be tougher.”
