Teeing Off: Soccer certainly isn’t cricket
I was going to devote this space to how awesome the Mariners are, but somewhere along the way they didn’t get the message and have stumbled out of the gate.

Kodiak finishes winless in inaugural tournament
Standing in the cold and layered in Kodiak High School baseball apparel, coach James Arnold watched as South Anchorage and Chugiak played for the inaugural Rex Edward Matautia Invitational Tournament title. Every so often he engaged with one of his coaches, or a fan, about his team — a squad that lost all four of its games in the four-day, season-opening tournament at Baranof Field. Arnold, in his third-year, wasn...
