(8-12-17) Week One finds the Soldotna (Ak) Stars adding to their win streak by picking up #50 with 21-0 over West Anchorage on a rainy night. West is the defending big school state runner-up in Alaska, an impressive first game match-up for both team.

Leading the way for the Stars was sophomore Aaron Faletoi (5-foot-10, 225-lb), who rushed 16 times for 124 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns, on defense he added a sack and a fumble recovery.

The Stars will go for win #51 in a row when they play Dimond next Friday.

Next week in their opener, Kimberly (Wisconsin), who leads the country with 56 wins in a row will take on Fond du Lac on the road.

The Papermakers game last season against Fond du Lac ended up in a playoff game win 32-29, on a late Danny Vanden Boom touchdown pass. The Cardinals will have some incentive to end the streak in a key opener for both teams.

Senior running back D.J. Stewart told WLUK TV:

“Every single year coming in, we say, this team we didn’t do anything,. Last year’s team, they did something, but we’re a completely new team. We got to come out here, we got to prove ourselves and do something with a new set of guys.”
