Crimson Bears stymied in semi-final

The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears ended their football season Saturday in a huge loss to the Service High School Cougars.

The Cougars scored the first touchdown within the first 15-seconds of the game, on a 90-yard kick-off return. From then on, they dominated the Bears, winning 64 to 21 in the large schools semi-finals. They will play South Anchorage next week for the championship title.

Small and medium-division schools played for the statewide title this weekend, with Nikiski beating Barrow on a score of 52 to 21 for small schools. Kenai won the medium schools championship over Homer. The score was 26 to 14.
