The Juneau Douglas Crimson Bears varsity football team is piling up the scores this season – and leaving most competitors scoreless.
That was the case again Friday when the Bears beat the Colony Knights 65 to zero. With a total of 219 points this season, the Crimson Bears have allowed just two touchdowns in four games. (Palmer scored 13 points two weeks ago. No other teams have scored against them. )
On Friday, Colony finished with just 29 yards of offense, while the Bears rushed for 387 yards and had 134 yards in passing.
The Bears also were penalized 14 times, something Head Coach Rich Sjoross calls “fixable:”
“Some of that stuff is from being aggressive, and you want the kids to be aggressive,” Sjooss says. “We have the ability to overcome some of those, we just can’t have too many of them, or else it’s going to come back and bite us at some point, and I think they understand that.”
Despite the penalties, the offense and defense were working well together, as they have all season.
Juneau is ranked the top team in the Railbelt Conference. The Bears next game is in Wasilla. We’ll have a preview later this week.
