West 7, Bartlett 6

A big defensive play by Maya McPherson in the fourth quarter helped West hang on for a 7-6 Cook Inlet Conference flag football win over Bartlett at Anchorage Football Stadium on Tuesday.

McPherson deflected a Bartlett pass near the end zone in the closing minutes to stall the Golden Bears' comeback effort and make a first-quarter touchdown hold up for a West win.

Grace Kubich led West's defense with nine pulls and two of Natalie Manske's five pulls were for a loss. Annie Rush threw for 108 yards on 8-of-15 passing for the Eagles.
