Swan Lake Fire cancels several football games

FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) The Swan Lake Fire in Southcentral Alaska is the number one priority fire in the nation, and has burned over 150,000 acres so far.

This has caused the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District to place a travel and outdoor activities restriction.
The Soldotna Stars will not be able to travel to Fairbanks to compete against the West Valley Wolfpack for their scheduled game Friday.
The Eielson Ravens were planning on traveling to Kenai to face the Kardinals, but will not be able to hit the road as much of the Sterling highway remains closed.

Since the Ravens and the Wolfpack will not be able to compete in their games this week, they have decided to meet up for a scrimmage at 6:30 Friday night as West Valley to stay tuned up.

Another cancellation involves the game between the Monroe Catholic Rams and the Nikiski Bulldogs. Nikiski will not be able to travel to Fairbanks for their Saturday matchup, so the Rams will scrimmage West Valley's JV squad Friday afternoon.

The only game holding up in Fairbanks is between the Lathrop Malemutes and the West Anchorage Eagles. West will travel to the Interior and will face the Malemutes on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

One game involving an Interior team that will take place, is the matchup between the North Pole Patriots and the Wasilla Warriors. The game will be played as scheduled, tomorrow at 7 p.m. in the Mat-Su Valley.

All Kenai Peninsula high school activities are canceled until further notice, including the Tsalteshi Invitational cross country meet.
