Homer notches big victory over ACS

Posted: Sunday, August 22, 2004

Homer running back Camron Hagen rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns as the Mariners picked up a 20-0 win over the Anchorage Christian School Lions Saturday in Anchorage.

Both of Hagen's touchdowns came in the first half, as the Mariners jumped out to a 14-0 lead, then held the Lions in the second half to pick up the nonconference victory.

Chet Dyson had 73 yards on 15 carries for ACS, which was hurt by penalties, committing 14 for 119 yards.

Homer's final score came early in the fourth quarter, when quarterback Canyon McKinstry hit Brandon Moffet with a 17-yard scoring strike that put the game out of reach. With the win, the Mariners moved to 2-0 on the season.

Patriots 33, Panthers 0

The North Pole Patriots ran off 33 first half points, then cruised through the second half to shut out the Skyview Panthers in non conference action Friday in Wasilla.

The game was moved to the Valley because of heavy smoke in the Fairbanks area.

Skyview was led offensively by Zach Rowell, who ran for 44 yards on 10 carries. Freshman Eddie Buffington added 37 yards for the Panthers, who were held to just 154 yards of offense by North Pole.

On Saturday, Skyview head coach Phil Sheridan said he team simply ran up against a superior opponent in the Patriots.

"I think they're the best team in the state," Sheridan said.

Skyview dropped to 0-2 on the season after losing its second-straight game to a large-schools opponent. Last week the Panthers were edged by Service, 28-20.

Next up for the Panthers are the Wasilla Warriors in Soldotna.
