Seward football gets big conference win over Eielson

The host Seward football team picked up a 28-7 Denali Conference victory over Eielson on Saturday.

The Seahawks move to 1-0 in the conference and 1-4 overall, while the Ravens fall to 0-2 in the league and 0-5 overall.

There are only three teams in the Denali Conference this season. That means Seward’s victory sets up a conference championship at Nikiski in Week 8. Only one team from the Denali Conference makes the Division III playoffs.

The Seahawks scored once in the first period and once in the second period to take a 14-0 lead into halftime.

Eielson increased the drama by putting seven on the board early in the fourth quarter, but Seward answered with a pair of scores.

Kupono Albino had three rushing touchdowns plus a pair of two-point conversions for Seward. Albino rushed for over 100 yards.

Gideon Schrock had the other touchdown for the Seahawks, while Seward head coach Tyler Mallory said Noah Price also had some big runs for Seward.

Hunter Forshee-Kurtz had two interceptions on defense, while John Van Buskirk plugged up the middle and made multiple tackles for loss.

Mallory also said Ronan Bickling came up big at outside linebacker with multiple tackles and a sack.
