PREP PICKS: Week 4 brings halfway mark of football season
The midway point of the Alaska High School season is here — it actually kicked off Thursday night with a pair of games involving Mat-Su area teams. Palmer (2-1) traveled to Eagle River (0-2) for a Northern Lights Conference matchup, while Dimond (2-1) played at Wasilla (0-3).
