            The Kodiak High School Bears football team was stymied for much of the game against the visiting Skyview Panthers on Saturday. They did all their scoring in a three-minute period, but that was enough to pull out a 12-6 overtime win in a crucial Northern Lights Conference game.

            It was a scoreless match on a sloppy field until Skyview's Kyle Pietro intercepted a Kevin Lapola Junior pass for a 65-yard touchdown return as the first half was coming to an end.

            The Bears didn't answer until there were less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter when back up quarterback Darren Aitolu connected with Fred Sorto.

            When Skyview was unable to respond, the game went into overtime. In Alaska high school football, each team is given four tries to score from the 10-yard line, and they continue until one team fails. The Bears were given the ball first and took the lead when Chris Parsons scored on the first possession.

             The Bears' Justin Goff intercepted Skyview's Jordan Jones on fourth down to preserve the victory.

            The Bears' record remains spotless at 2-and-0, and with both wins against conference opponents, the Bears are in first place in the NLC. Skyview goes to 1-and-2 overall, with a 0-and-2 NLC record.

            The Bears defense shut down the Panther's passing game. Skyview had no completions on only nine attempts. However their running game racked up an impressive 256 yards on 42 carries.

            Kodiak was 10-for-23 through the air for 141 yards and one TD. On the ground, the Bears ran for only 118 yards on 54 carries.

            In other conference action over the weekend, Kenai lost to Juneau 29-20, while Soldotna routed Houston 68-0. Next up for Kodiak is another NLC game in Homer against the Mariners on Saturday.
