Tailgate Tour: Wolverines and Eagles meet in semifinal showdown

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Only two weekends left in the high school football regular season, and this Friday four teams will meet for a chance to play in the large schools state championship game. The KTUU Tailgate Tour will be in West Anchorage as the Eagles host the Wolverines in the ASAA division I semifinals.

The Eagles are one of the hottest teams in Alaska football winning their past six games including a 19-9 victory over South to end the regular season. Every October West head coach Tim Davis seems to have his team playing the best football of the season winning state championships in 2010, 2013, 2015 and posting a 14-4 record in the postseason since 2013.

If any team knows a thing about knocking off the Eagles in the playoffs it’s the Wolverines, who claimed their last state championship in 2014 with a victory over West in the large schools state championship game. Over the weekend the Wolverines earned their first postseason victory since 2014 defeating Juneau unified 54-14.
