Mustangs coach Duncan Shackelford said his team — which suited just 23 varsity players — couldn’t deal with the Wolfpack’s ability to rotate in fresh players on offense and defense in their 35-12 loss to West Valley on Aug. 11.

“The kids were in shape, but not in shape to play in 70 degrees against a platoon team,” Shackelford said by phone after the game. “West Valley’s a good football team.”

Chugiak led after the first quarter and trailed just 14-6 at halftime.

Sophomore running back Josh Capers had a huge debut for Chugiak (0-1 overall, 0-0 Cook Inlet Conference), scoring both touchdowns and rushing for 108 yards on just 16 carries.

Larenzo Graham scored twice for West Valley (1-0), which tied for first place last season in the Railbelt Conference.

Chugiak returns to action Friday, Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. in the home opener at Tom Huffer Sr. Stadium.

Rival Eagle River will host West on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 6 p.m.
