The Kodiak High School Bears football team kicked off the 2012 season on Saturday against the West Anchorage JV in grand fashion, rolling up 45 points and holding the Eagles to zero.

The "mercy rule," which kicks in when one team is so far ahead that officials keep the clock running, was instituted in the second quarter, resulting in a very quick game.

The Kodiak High School Bears football team kicked off the 2012 season on Saturday against the West Anchorage JV in grand fashion, rolling up 45 points and holding the Eagles to zero.

The "mercy rule," which kicks in when one team is so far ahead that officials keep the clock running, was instituted in the second quarter, resulting in a very quick game. KVOK broadcast team Doug Letch and Steve Rounsaville have the call at the final buzzer:

— (Football 1 27 sec "With the running clock … a lot tougher for the Bears I think.")

After some disappointing seasons, Letch said some questioned whether the Bears could even compete with a big mainland school, but he was optimistic:

— (Football 2 57 sec "I thought the Bears would … give you a pretty good football team.")

Kodiak will once again play host next Saturday in a conference game against the Houston Hawks. Like the West game, it will be played on the Woody Way Field. The Bears then hit the road for three weeks, returning to host arch-rival Soldotna in the homecoming game – perhaps on the team’s brand new field at Baranof Park.
