Chugiak quarterback Quentin Wilson runs into the end zone during a high school football game against Kodiak Friday at Joe Floyd Track and Field. 

For the third straight week, Kodiak football jumps up a classification. 

The Bears host Division I Wasilla today at Joe Floyd Track and Field in a nonconference game. Kickoff is 6 p.m. 

Kodiak enters Week 3 still searching for its first points of the season. Dimond and Chugiak pitched shut outs against the Bears in the first two weeks of the season. 

Kodiak moved the ball last week against Chugiak — 199 yards and 12 first downs — but was turned away on one trip inside the red zone. The Bears also had four turnovers, a week after having three. 

Wasilla, under first-year head coach Ken Ottinger, has started the season 2-0 and is ranked No. 5 in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network Division I poll. 

The Warriors beat West Valley 39-32 in Week 1 and North Pole 28-12 in Week 2. 

“They are going to be bigger than us,” Kodiak coach Bryan Ellsworth said. 

Wasilla beat Kodiak 44-30 last season and leads the all-time series 2-1. This is the first game in the series to be played on The Rock. 

The junior varsity game is at 10 a.m. Saturday. 

 

CROSS COUNTRY

The Kodiak High School cross country team competes at the Bartlett State Preview meet Saturday in Anchorage. 

The meet will feature 31 teams, which includes Region III foes Wasilla, Palmer and Colony. 

The boys race at 11:20 a.m., followed by the girls at noon.
