One play decided Kodiak’s season
Pistol able right 437 max.  That was the play Kodiak quarterback Josh Yavorsky called in the huddle on the final play of the Bears’ Week 5 game at Kenai.  In layman’s terms — a desperation Hail Mary heave to the end zone. With four seconds left in the game and Kodiak on Kenai’s 21-yard-line, Yavorsky dropped back and floated the ball in the direction of Fredy Sorto. Sorto plucked the ball from the sky at the one a...

Gill and his doubles partner Allen Santa Maria were overpowered by their competition, dropping their only two matches. Instead of licking his wounds after going winless in his first state appearance, he stuck around and soaked in as much of the tournamen...
