Football falls at home
Kayhi football(1-3) suffered their 3rd loss 9-8 last saturday to the Nikiski Bulldogs. Kayhi trailed Nikiski at half 3-0. Kayhi made an offensive change at half, senior Alex Malouf came in at quarterback in the third quarter to score the Kings only touchdown of the game. At half time senior captain Kristian Pihl and senior Alex Malouf took matters into their own hands.
“We need to start making adjustments and fix what we have been doing wrong,” said Pihl. “We need to start being a second half team.”
Senior Jordan Geary had one recovering fumble after the half.
“I came out after half with a whole different mind set,” said Jordan. “We switched quarterbacks and the offensive line changed their blocking scheme to adapt to a defense we didn’t see in film,” said Geary.
