Dimond 12, South 0

Mauri Butzke's eight pulls sparked a Dimond defense that kept the South Wolverines scoreless in a battle between unbeaten flag football teams Tuesday.

Angelline Nageak and Kristine Cristobal each scored touchdowns for the Lynx in the 12-0 Cook Inlet Conference victory.

The win pushed Dimond's record to 7-0. South fell to 6-1.

Five of Butzke's pulls were for losses. Nageak added six pulls, D'Shaunna Schuster had five, and D'Avionne Rabb and Kana Mateaki each intercepted passes.

Nageak carried the ball 14 times for 103 yards, including a 12-yard fourth-quarter TD. Cristobal rushed 13 times for 56 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Quarterback Sunshine Meraz kept the Lynx moving with a handful of fourth-down completions, including two fourth-quarter passes to Haley Rogers.

West 20, Chugiak 0

Kayzee Galloway passed for two touchdowns and ran for another to carry West past Chugiak 20-0.

Galloway's touchdown strikes went to Tazhay Wyche and Taylor Stone.

Defensively, West was led by Nyenei John (5 pulls, 1 interception) and Arian Harris (5 pulls).

East 32, Eagle River 0

Four interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown by Kimora Nicdao, powered East past Eagle River 32-0.

Nicdao was busy all night, rushing six times for 56 yards, catching two passes for 30 yards and going 25 yards into the end zone with her interception.

West's other interceptions came from Emma Butcher, Jessica Titzel and Aniyah Dean.

Running the Eagles offense was Fua Filoialii, who ran for two touchdowns and threw a short touchdown pass to Amari Brown.

Service 24, Bartlett 6

Big plays helped the Service Cougars subdue Bartlett 24-6.

Autumn Blair raced 80 yards for a touchdown, Stephanie Fontaine returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown and Maya Brubaker went 30 yards for another pick-six.

Blair added a passing touchdown to Ashlynn Noethlich, and Brubaker supplied a team-high six flag pulls.
