The Service Cougars won their third straight football game in impressive fashion and the Chugiak Mustangs won their first game in dramatic fashion on Friday night.
Facing a team that has played in the last five Division I state championship games, Service held the West Eagles scoreless in a 27-0 Cook Inlet Conference victory at West High.
It was the second straight shutout for the Cougars, who are 3-1 under new head coach Kahlil Boling and have matched their win total from last season's 3-6 campaign.
Jason Villanueva-Kaeo threw four touchdown passes to lead the Cougars, who were coming off a 37-0 win over Wasilla.
West, which has scored seven points in its last two games, dropped to 2-2 overall and 0-1 in the CIC.
In Chugiak, Thomas Sitz kicked a 21-yard field goal with a little more than five minutes left to boost the Mustangs past Wasilla 17-14.
The win improved Chugiak to 1-3 overall and 1-0 in the Chugach Conference.
Chugiak took an early 14-0 lead on touchdown runs by Tyler Huffer (12 yards) and Jeremiah Wilson (71 yards).
With 22 seconds left in the half, Wasilla (1-3, 0-1) scored on Jordan Quenga's 2-yard run to make it 14-7 at the half.
The Warriors tied it 14-14 in the third quarter on Colton Lindquist's 3-yard run, setting the scene for the game-winning field goal by Sitz.
In other games Friday, Soldotna rolled past visiting West Valley 62-18 for its third straight win, Houston routed Homer 59-0 and Ketchikan remained undefeated in three games with a 54-24 win over Nikiski.
The game between Redington and Eielson was cancelled after Eielson's bus broke down on the Parks Highway near Talkeetna.
