Prep football around the Interior saw some dominant performances from the DII/DIII level

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Lathrop Malemutes went down to the Matsu Valley in search of a very important conference victory over the Palmer Moose, and they walked away with their closest match this season.
The Malemutes were able to secure the 19-14 victory over the Moose, thanks to Jaydenn Littell finding Juan Mendez late in the fourth quarter.
Lathrop now hold the playoff keys in their hand, as they head into the 2018 Dog Bowl against the West Valley Wolfpack looking to knock them out of postseason contention.
The West Valley Wolfpack took down the North Pole Patriots this past weekend, as the Wolfpack saw their new starting quarterback Shaun Conwell lead the team on a very efficient night.
Conwell went 9 of 11 for 222 yards, helping West Valley win 46-0 over their Interior rivals.
Conwell dished out three touchdowns, getting Zach Campbell on a 36 yarder, and finding Avery Weston for a 62 and 97 yard touchdown catches.
Preston DeMario scored twice on the ground, while Isaiah Warner ran in a highlight reel touchdown.
The Wolfpack now face the Malemutes in the Dog Bowl, while the Patriots look to grab their first victory of the season when they head off to face the Kodiak Bears.
The Eielson Ravens were able to run all over the Valdez Buccaneers, as they even had their linemen running in for touchdowns.
The Dirty Birds bulldozed their way for the 59-20 victory, ripping the Bucs apart with their textbook running game.
Scott Fry led the big guys with touchdowns, as Eielson had no issue taking down their Aurora Conference foes.
The Ravens are now preparing for their final regular season matchup against the Monroe Catholic Rams.
The Monroe Catholic Rams football program is poised to make the playoffs for the first time since 2012, after they took care of business against the Redington Huskies on Saturday night.
As the rain and mud hampered both teams.
The Rams won 34-0, but it was the hard rains in the second half that prevented the offenses from gaining traction.
Monroe scored off of two touchdown passes from Trae Puryear and Josh Gray ran in for the Rams to help their team get in position for a chance in the postseason.
The Rams are 5-2, and they play their biggest match this weekend at home against the Eielson Ravens.
