Emmonak Huskies Look to Upset Unbeaten Thunderbirds

The Emmonak Huskies (15-8) enter the playoffs with a winning record and a chance to spoil the Kake Thunderbirds’ perfect season.

Kake Thunderbirds Aim to Maintain Perfect Record

The Kake Thunderbirds (23-0) come into the playoffs with an unblemished record, making them the heavy favorites. They’ve been dominant throughout the regular season, winning every game they’ve played (conference, home, away, and neutral sites). Their perfect 14-0 conference record further emphasizes their complete control within their league. Offensively, they’ve been impressive, averaging a staggering 82 points per game. Defensively, they’ve been nearly impenetrable, allowing a mere 36 points per game on average.

Can Underdogs Howl Upset?

This opening round playoff matchup presents a classic David vs. Goliath scenario. The Kake Thunderbirds enter as the clear favorites with their unmatched record and high-powered offense. However, the playoffs are all about surprises, and the Emmonak Huskies shouldn’t be entirely counted out. Their experience in close games (evident by their neutral site record) could prove valuable. Can they overcome the odds and pull off a major upset?
