    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Huskies, the top ranked team in the state of Alaska, will play at 2 p.m. Saturday in Anchorage against the Service Cougars and 107.9 The Hawk will be broadcasting the game live.

      “Service plays at a pace we haven’t seen yet this season,” Juneau coach Rich Sjoroos said. “They put pressure on teams for all four quarters. While this is a huge challenge, we are excited for the opportunity tomorrow.”

      Over their first four games Juneau has scored 31 first quarter points to opponents 28; 51 second quarter points to opponents 7; 28 third quarter points to opponents 33; and 40 fourth quarter points to opponents 27. The Huskies have outscored opponents 150 to 95. Service has scored 88 points and allowed 148.

      The Huskies are also the smallest roster by number in the Cook Inlet Conference.

      “We are definitely nursing some injuries,” Sjoroos said. “The last two games verse East and West were very physical. The Cook Inlet Conference as a whole is a huge step up in class. Every week will be a grind.”

      The Huskies lead the CIC with the East Anchorage Thunderbirds second, West Anchorage Eagles third and Colony Knights fourth. All four teams have 3-1 records. The South Wolverines (1-2) are fifth, Bartlett Golden Bears (2-2) sixth, Service (1-3) seventh and Dimond Lynx (0-3) eighth.
