While Kodiak High’s football team is limited to just practices because of a district imposed travel ban, several of the schools in the state have logged games.

Colony ran its record to 2-0 with a 44-7 victory over Wasilla over the weekend. The Knights scored four touchdowns in the final 8 minutes of the game to turn a 10-point lead into a convincing win.

In Week 1, Colony defeated Palmer 49-0.

Wasilla dropped to 1-1 following its opening week 33-0 victory over Houston. 

Teams in the Mat-Su Borough School District are only playing each other this season. This week, Wasilla plays Redington (Thursday) and Palmer hosts Houston (Friday). 

Because of high COVID-19 numbers on the Kenai Peninsula, only one game was played last weekend, with Homer blowing out Seward 48-8. 

In Fairbanks, both Lathrop and West Valley have suspended operations until Sept. 5 because a player from their Week 1 game tested positive for COVID-19. According to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, two players from North Pole reported coronavirus symptoms, which resulted in the cancellation of its game against Homer. 

Anchorage teams are only conducting conditioning practices, while the area continues to be in the high-risk level for COVID-19 cases. 

According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, 17 states will not play football this fall.
