No Kenai Peninsula esports teams participated in competition this week.
SoHi coach Jonus Kaponus Angleton said that the Stars matches were rescheduled because of both parent-teacher conferences and the winter storm that closed central peninsula schools Wednesday in the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. Per district policy, weather closures cancel all school activity – even computer games played over the internet.
Kenai coach Shane Lopez said each team was able to choose an off week, and he chose this week ahead of the start of the season because of parent-teacher conferences – which were on Thursday. Avoiding complications from the weather was a stroke of luck.
SoHi’s League of Legends team has been disqualified from state championship contention for too many forfeits – which Angleton said were a result of the struggle to get enough players to field the team.
The Stars’ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate team will make up this week’s game on Monday in a bout with the Sitka Wolves, and their Rocket League team will play the Houston Hawks on Thursday ahead of their regularly scheduled Week 6 match.
Kenai will return to play in all three games next week with the usual schedule — League of Legends on Tuesday, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Wednesday and Rocket League on Thursday.
