Bartlett 13, West 12

Bartlett's Myna Lincoln scored two touchdowns and made an interception Monday at Anchorage Football Stadium, and the Golden Bears edged West 13-12 in a Cook Inlet Conference flag football game.

Lincoln ran for one touchdown and caught a pass from Kiera Stokes for another. Lincoln's interception put a stop to one of West's fourth-quarter drives, but Jenae Walker made the most critical stop on the game's final play when she pulled the flag of a West runner who was just 1-yard from crossing the goal line as time expired.

Dimond 13, East 0

Tara Thompson's two touchdown passes was all the offense Dimond needed Monday, and her two interceptions on defense helped the Lynx shut out East 13-0 in a CIC flag football game at Dimond Alumni Field.

Dimond's Vanessa Tufaga was also impressive on both sides of the ball, leading the Lynx with five pulls and rushing for 79 yards on 16 carries. Rachel Brady hauled in both of Thompson's touchdown passes, one for 15 yards and one for 14. Gabby Coleman added an interception for the Lynx.
