After the combination of a snowstorm and parent-teacher conferences halted all esports action on the Kenai Peninsula last week, teams in Kenai, Soldotna and Nikiski were back to work, with games played by all three schools Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
League of Legends
Kenai Central was handed its second loss of the season, and the first since Week 1 on Tuesday, falling to the top-ranked team in the state, Mat-Su Central School, 2-0. Mat-Su Central is the only team in the league with a perfect record. Kenai falls to 4-2, remaining third in the league. Next week, the Kardinals will face off with Lathrop, the second place team.
League of Legends is a team-based fantasy game where two teams of five magical heroes and villains fight to control territory and destroy the enemy team’s base.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Kenai 1’s match was rescheduled to next Monday.
Kenai 2 fell to Delta Junction, its first loss of the season, though only the second game the Kardinals have played after a series of forfeits and their bye week last week.
SoHi played two matches this week, making up for a cancellation due to last week’s snowstorm.
Monday, the Stars bested Sitka High School 2-1, while on Wednesday they fell to Chugiak High School 2-1. They are now 2-4, 16th in the league.
Nikiski’s Smash team also fell to Chugiak High School on Wednesday, with a score of 2-1. Their record is 3-3, and they are 11th in the league.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fighting game featuring a roster of 89 playable characters licensed from 43 different franchises. Players win by knocking their opponents off of the arena.
Kenai’s Rocket League match was rescheduled to next Thursday. The Kards will play Service High School ahead of their regularly scheduled Week 7 match.
Soldotna swept Hutchison High School in a match making up for one lost last week. Their Week 6 match against Steller Secondary School was delayed to Monday. The Stars are 4-1 and fourth in the league.
Rocket League is like soccer, if soccer were played with giant jet-propelled cars. The team that puts the ball in the goal the most times wins.
