South wins all-state football game

South defeated North 53-20 in the small-schools all-state football game Saturday.


Former Kenai Central head coach Jim Beeson coached the South team, which was made up of players from Kenai Central, Homer and Skyview. Nikiski didn’t participate, and Soldotna played in the large-schools game.


Homer’s Dyllan Day was named the game’s most valuable player. Kenai Central’s Kyle Dougherty was the defensive player of the game, while Homer’s Robin Glosser was the offensive player of the game.


Alex Nason of Kenai Central scored a touchdown for South.


Beeson said it was a positive experience, particularly because it allowed Homer and Kenai Central to share a sideline less than a month after squaring off in the medium-schools state title game.


About 20 players participated from Kenai Central, Homer and Skyview, Beeson said.


“It was enjoyable for everybody,” Beeson said. “It was a good team effort and a chance to join together. Everybody had a good time.”
