West 20, Service 6
A strong defensive effort, led by Mimi Troxel's nine pulls, propelled West to a 20-6 Cook Inlet Conference flag football victory over Service at Dimond Alumni Field on Tuesday.
The Eagles took a 13-0 halftime lead on a 1-yard rushing touchdown from Annie Rush and a 51-yard rushing touchdown from Anna Sophia Roberts, who led the team with 81 yards on nine carries. Rush completed 6 of 15 passes for 83 yards, throwing one interception and a 5-yard touchdown pass to Mekayla Winchester in the third quarter.
Shiccia Harris-Grant followed Winchester's touchdown with an extra-point conversion catch that put West up 20-0, and the Eagles held the Cougars out of the end zone until less than two minutes remained in the game.
