South has reason to be riled after dropping in prep football poll

sports@adn.comSeptember 2, 2013 

The South Wolverines, defending state large-school champions and previously ranked No. 1 in the Alaska Sports Broadcasting Network's football poll, can now play the no-respect card.

After falling 19-0 at Moorpark, Calif., over the weekend, the Wolverines (2-1) of the Cook Inlet Conference plunged three spots in Monday's poll, falling to fourth.

Moving into the top spot by jumping two places was defending state runner-up Service (3-0), coming off a 39-21 Cook Inlet Conference victory over Bartlett. Palmer (3-0) of the Railbelt Conference, meanwhile, moved up one spot to No. 2 after racking a 32-0 nonconference win over East.

Lathrop (3-0) of the Railbelt moved up two spots to No. 3, courtesy of a 27-0 win over West Valley in the annual Dog Bowl. Wasilla of the Railbelt returned to the poll at No. 5 following its 35-26 comeback win against Colony.

Falling out of the large-school poll was Chugiak of the CIC, which fell 6-0 at Dimond.

Soldotna (3-0) is ranked No. 1 among medium and small schools for the second straight week. Juneau (3-0) bumped up a spot to No. 2 with a 55-20 win over North Pole, which was previously No. 2 and slid to No. 5 this week.

Kenai (3-0) is ranked third and Kodiak (2-0) is ranked fourth.
