Football Hosts Homer

Kayhi (2-4) will play their last game against Homer (3-3) at home on Friday Oct. 4 at Esther Shea Field. Kayhi will be recognizing their seniors starting at 6pm, they have 14 seniors this season. Senior Kristian Pihl talks about playing his last football game. 
“It’s been a very emotional week coming to realization that football is going to be over for me in about 24 hours, it’s been making me look back on a lot of memories,” said Pihl. “The more I’ve been thinking the more I regret the feel of feeling like I didn’t go hard enough on certain plays and certain games even. What I’ve been suggesting to all the lower classmen in sports is to go as hard as you can, no matter the circumstances because it is going to end soon before you know it.”

Kayhi football(2-4) suffered their fourth defeat 65-0 last Saturday to Houston Hawks(5-0). Kings trailed 51-0 at half and only had one first down the entire game. The Hawks are the number one team in the conference. 
“We were overmatched in every category.” Said Kristian Pihl. 
With 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter Kings coach Ryan Varela subbed in Patrick Garica as quarterback.  
“I haven’t played qb [quarterback] for a while, I came in and had a good mindset not thinking about what happened in the past,” said Garcia. “I believe I have grown as a player mentally.” 
Kristian Pihl said he has had enough of losing. 
“I haven’t seen any film yet, but I am going into Friday expecting to win,” said Pihl
Phil along with other seniors will play their last home game of their highschool against Homer this Friday at 6.

Kayhi football (2-3) travels to Wasilla this weekend to play the Houston Hawks (6-0). Last week the Kings game against Monroe Catholic was cancelled due to shortage of players on Monroe’s team. Senior and new starting quarterback AJ Malouf is ready to play after last weeks bye. 

“We’re rested up, and we’re out for blood.” Malouf said. “Our loss to Nikiski really put us down, but after a week of rest and some changes in the line up. we’re ready to bounce back.” 

With a win Kayhi will stay alive in their efforts to make the playoffs this year. Kickoff is tonight at 7 p.m. at Houston Highschool.
