The Kayhi Kings (9-6, 1-1) are hosting the Bears (4-12, 0-2) this Friday and Saturday. The Kings went 4-1 last year against the Bears.
Senior Kristian Pihl is hungry to take two wins this weekend against the Bears and to improve overall.
“I want two wins this weekend,” said Pihl. “I want our team to improve everywhere and to dominate.”
The Bears are led by Cooper Kriegmont who scored 30 points in a win over Chugiak earlier this season. The Bears are currently riding a 6-game losing streak, including two home losses over Thunder Mountain last weekend.
This is the first meeting between the two teams this season.
The Bears won the Region title over the Kings in 2017 and 2018 and won state in 2016. The Kings are both defending 2019 Region V Champions and State Champions.
