Eagle River hung with the conference’s best team for much of the first half of a wild 66-36 Service win at Chugiak’s Tom Huffer Sr. Stadium Friday night.
The Wolves (1-6 overall, 1-5 Cook Inlet Conference) trailed the undefeated Cougars just 21-12 after the first quarter thanks to a 50-yard Josh Vanderlooven kickoff return and 55-yard run by Ed Hall.
Just two days after getting word that their three previous victories would be wiped away due to the use of an ineligible player, the Chugiak Mustangs played their best game of the season in a 34-32 victory over West at Anchorage Football Stadium.
"I've never been prouder of a group of kids," Chugiak coach Duncan Shackelford said after his team improved to 1-6 overall and 1-5 in the Cook Inlet Conference.
