Ketchikan 23, Homer 22

The Ketchikan football team held off host Homer for a Northern Lights Conference victory on Saturday.

The Mariners fell to 2-3 with the loss, while Ketchikan moved to 4-1.

The game was back and forth, with Homer bolting to a 14-0 lead, Ketchikan putting up 23 unanswered points, then Homer scoring late to tighten up the game.

Mike Swoboda put the Mariners on the board in the first quarter, and a run by Josh Fisk made it 8-0.

In the second quarter, Fisk ran for a touchdown, but the point after missed, leading to a 14-0 score.

But before the half, Tee McBurnette hit Connor Hicks with a 10-yard scoring strike, and Noah Silva caught the two-point conversion.

With 8:54 left in the third quarter, Hicks ran 60 yards for a touchdown, and Silva again caught the two-point conversion for a 16-14 lead.

With 10:35 left in the game, Hicks scored again, this time from 21 yards. Crucially, Hayden Elliot made the extra point for a two-score game.

With 2:50 left, Sheldon Hutt hit Zach McKenna for an 8-yard touchdown, then Eric Hill ran in the two-point conversion for a one-point game, but that was as close as Homer would get.

Fisk carried 14 times for 101 yards for Homer.

Seward 22, Barrow 20

The visiting Seahawks notched a big Greatland Conference victory. Seward moves to 2-1 in the league and 3-2 overall, while Barrow falls to 3-1 in the league and 3-2 overall.

The first quarter featured plenty of scoring, with the Seahawks notching a touchdown and two-point conversion with just a second left in the first to tie the game at 14.

Barrow had the lone touchdown of the second quarter, but the Seahawks were able to stuff the attempted run conversion.

That was useful in the third quarter, when Seward had a touchdown and two-point conversion to clinch the game.
