Top plays of the week of October 8th-14th

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - It's time to take a look at the top plays of the past week, with the I-5.
Starting off the list we have some high school volleyball. West Valley's Zoey Vehmeier sets up her teammate Sarah Cooper, who delivers an absolutely brutal kill against their cross-town rivals, the Lathrop Malemutes. West Valley is currently undefeated in conference play.
Next up we go to Nanook Hockey where freshman goaltender Gustavs Grigals was able to make a great save. St. Cloud's Blake Lizotte is able to make his way back to the puck and fire a shot past the Nanook defender, but he couldn't get by Grigals who made the save with his armpit. The Rookie from Latvia finished the day with 30 saves.
We go to the Big Dipper Ice Arena for play number three. Jack Johnston and Jonathan Sorenson put Chippewa's Goalie in a 2-on-1 situation. Johnston dishes it to Sorenson, who buries the shot.
Markie Miller returns to the I-5 this week, this time in the #2 spot. In the third set of the Nanook Volleyball team's sweep over the UAA Seawolves, Miller takes an assist from Cate Whiting and delivers a powerful kill into the hands of the Seawolves front line. This killshot secured the first win over their in-state rivals for the first time since 2010, and their first sweep over them since 2007.
And number one takes us down to Palmer for the Division 3 state championship. With Eielson holding only a 7-0 lead in the third quarter, Barrow drove down the field and set up for a chip-shot field goal on the 17 yard line. However, the kick was blocked by Brock Renson and ran back the length of the field by Ryan Armour. This one completely swung the momentum for the Dirty Birds, who shut out the Whalers 36-0 to win their fourth state title in five years.
