South 8, Service 0

The South and Service flag football teams wore blue for their Tuesday game as a tribute to South High student Emily Tredway, who was killed in a Seward Highway motorcycle crash on Saturday.

Service coach Frank Carney said blue was Tredway's favorite color. Tredway was a soccer player and swimmer for the Wolverines.

On Tuesday, South scored the game's only touchdown in the fourth quarter on a keeper by quarterback Shelby Ottum inside the 5-yard line.

The Wolverines added two points on a bad snap by Service that resulted in a safety.

The Cougars were led on defense by Ashlynn Noethlich (7 pulls, 4 for loss) and Bridget Funbeen (10 pulls).

Chugiak 14, Bartlett 7

The Chugiak Mustangs held Bartlett scoreless until the final two minutes Tuesday to claim a 14-7 flag football win.

The Mustangs raced to a 14-0 halftime lead on a windy and rainy night in Chugiak. Chasity Horn rushed 20 yards for one touchdown and tossed a 12-yard pass to Taylor Rukes for the other.

A Chugiak defense featuring six pulls apiece by Eva Palmer, Goldnu Vu and Brianna Panter, who also blocked two passes, kept Bartlett in check for most of the game.

The Golden Bears avoided the shutout with a 10-yard touchdown run by Ayanna Lauofo with less than two minutes remaining.

Lauofo piled up 123 yards of offense and led Bartlett's defense with seven pulls.

Dimond 32, East 12

Dimond got back on the winning track Tuesday by dispatching East 32-12 in a CIC flag football game at East High.

Megan Luther rushed for two touchdowns and passed for another for the Lynx (7-1), who were coming off a loss on Saturday to West.

Luther rushed for 97 yards on 15 carries, with TD runs of four and 10 yards. She also connected with Desjorey Tanuvasa for a 27-yard scoring play.

Also providing touchdowns were Savanna Wallace, who caught a 6-yard strike from Sunshine Merez, and Victoria Johansen, who ran 3 yards into the end zone.

Leading the Lynx defense were Seanne Bialo (7 pulls), Angeline Nageak (5 pulls, 1 interception), D'Shanna Schuster (3 pulls, 1 interception) and Makenna Boring (5 pulls, 3 for loss).

Both of East's touchdowns came on long scoring plays — a 30-yard catch by Amari Brown and a 45-yard reception by Kimora Nicdao. Both passes came from Fua Filoialii. Emma Butcher added 53 all-purpose yards for the Thunderbirds.

Defensively, East got 12 pulls from Tatum Epperson and 10 from Kalina Cross.

West 33, Eagle River 0

The West Eagles ran their record to 8-0 Tuesday by rolling past Eagle River 33-0.

Highlighting the victory was Sylvia Xiavong's 65-yard touchdown run.

Two of West quarterback Rebecca Syrup's four passes were for touchdowns — a 17-yarder to Ta'Zhang Wyche and a 13-yarder to Raymi Ross. Wyche also scored on a run.

Anchoring the Eagles defense were Inah Cruz and River Watkin with four pulls apiece and Nena Jones, who had an interception.
