Service High remained No. 1 among large schools in this week's Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network poll of prep football teams after a weekend in which ranked teams lit up scoreboards around the state.
The top five teams this week among large schools in the poll of state media averaged more than 46 points per game over the weekend.
Defending state champion Service (2-1) beat Cook Inlet Conference opponent East, 50-28; Palmer (3-0) of the Railbelt Conference, which remained No. 2, thumped Kodiak 49-7 in a non-league game; South (3-0) of the CIC, which stayed at No. 3, throttled conference opponent Bartlett, 49-0; No. 4 ranked North Pole (3-0) of the Railbelt beat previously fourth-ranked Juneau, 46-27, in a league game; and new No. 5 Colony (3-0) of the Railbelt racked a 39-20 conference win at Wasilla.
Small-school ranked teams likewise piled up the points.
Top-ranked Eielson (3-0) beat Valdez, 53-6; No. 2 Soldotna rattled Skyview, 73-7; No. 3 Nikiski handled Houston 49-25; and No. 4 Thunder Mountain beat Ketchikan, 55-21. No. 5-ranked Kodiak, which slipped from its previous station at No. 2, was the only ranked team to lose last weekend, falling to large-school Palmer.
