Two home football games this weekend in Juneau – the Thunder Mountain Falcons play the Ketchikan Kings and the Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears face the North Pole Patriots.
After the Bears shut down Wasilla last week by 39 points, Crimson Bears head coach Rich Sjoross warned players about the Patriots.
“As good of a team as they’ve had probably in the last 10 years,” he said.
The Patriots have a score to settle: They left Juneau last year with no score, while the Bears amassed 67 points. Sjoross says the Patriots will be fired up when they hit Adair-Kennedy field. The Varsity game is 8 p.m. Saturday. The JVs play at 5 o’clock.
Across the Mendenhall Valley, the Thunder Mountain Falcons kick off against Ketchikan at 7 p.m. Falcons JVs are playing Seward at 4 p.m.
