Juneau high school football teams suffered major losses this weekend.
In a home game marked by penalties, interceptions and fumbles, the Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears fell to the Henry Foss High School Falcons on a score of 41 to 22. It was the Bears’ first loss of the season. One consolation: it was a non-conference game.
The Thunder Mountain Falcons were overwhelmed by the North Pole Patriots, who won on a score of 64 to 0. Both teams are part of the Southeast Conference and the loss does count toward the season. The game was played in North Pole.
Foss, from Tacoma, Wash., traveled to Juneau for the game.
JDHS has four wins and one loss for the season. Two were Southeast Conference games.
TMHS has one win and one loss in conference games and two non-conference losses.
