Kayhi Football (0-1) travels to Fairbanks this Friday to take on the reigning state champs the Eielson Ravens (1-0). Eielson beat Kayhi in the state semi final game last year 55-0. Kayhi first loss of the season was to the Barrow Whalers 42-16. Eielson beat the Whalers last year in the state championship game 36-0. Football captain Jackson Kaye says the Kings are ready for the challenge.
“Our first game was a little hard to watch I’ll admit,” Kaye said. “But our team has made some real improvements in the last couple weeks and I think we got a real chance at putting up some big points this weekend.”
Kick off is on Saturday at 2 p.m. at Ben Eielson Highschool.
