West punches ticket to First National Bowl
The 2017 First National Bowl will feature Bartlett versus West in an all Cook Inlet Conference affair. In a rematch of last year's Division 1 state championship, West defeated reigning champion East 21-18.
West took a 14-12 lead into halftime, but found themselves down to East 18-14 late. A "Hail Mary"-type play, which featured a connection from Qyntyn Pilcher to Jared Harjehausen, put the Eagles up for good.
West takes on Bartlett for the ASAA D1 First National Bowl championship on Friday, Oct. 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the Anchorage Football Stadium. The game will air live and in its entirety on GCI Channel 907.
