Kenai cruises to win over Skyview

The Kardinals pummeled the Panthers 45-0 at Skyview High on Saturday afternoon, raising their Northern Lights Conference record to 4-0 and their overall tally to 6-0. Skyview dropped to 0-3 in the NLC and 1-4 overall.


Kenai senior Jace Daniels returned from injury to have another big game.

“He is just on another level compared to us,” said Skyview coach Chris Finley. “He ran all over us.”

Finley said his team was doing all they could to control the clock and keep the ball away from Kenai, but that tactic wasn’t enough to stop the Kards.

“I was watching the film on Kenai, and the more they had the ball the more they score,” Finley said. “We took our time running each play, I told (quarterback) Bailey (Jones) to run the play clock to within five seconds of the snap.

“It was rough, but they’re just a different level school than us.”

Jones was 2 for 2 in passing attempts for 10 yards, while running back Brandon Rice led Skyview with 40 rushing yards.

In a game that was 38-0 at halftime, the Kards further established their position atop the NLC standings, and will travel to Valdez next weekend, before preparing for what appears to be an epic game that will decide the top NLC school on Oct. 5 against the undefeated Soldotna Stars at home.
