Sohi is California cool, Service & East split weekly top honors

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - It’s already week five of the Alaska football season, and the KTUU Tailgate Tour is headed to Colony High School for a Chugach Conference clash between the Knights and Golden Bears. Both teams look to lockdown a coveted conference win this Friday.

Week 5 Prep Football Polls

The jury is out on who’s the top Div. I prep football team as this week’s coaches' poll has East number one, and the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network Poll has Service number one.

The Cougars and T-Birds will meet on October fifth, but before East can think about Service they’ll have a conference test against South on Saturday. In the Chugach Conference, the Mustangs have put together an undefeated season of their own, and face Wasilla on Saturday in game that could decide the conference.

Soldotna has left no question who is the best team in Div. II dismantling Christian High School 42-7 last Friday in El Cajon, California. Soldotna Quarterback Jersey Truesdell did a little bit of everything throwing and running for a touchdown on top of 115 yards rushing, Aaron Faletoi had three rushing touchdowns, over 105 yards rushing, stats courtesy Radio Kenai.
