The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears toppled the Thunder Mountain Falcons 57 to 0 Friday night.
It was the end of regular season play for Juneau’s high school football teams. Now that both teams are in the Southeast Conference, it’s the first time the game counts toward season standings.
The annual football game is called the Glacier Bowl — appropriate whether it’s played on TMHS field or Adair Kennedy, since both have a view of the Mendenhall Glacier.
The Bears easily took previous meetings and this year’s was no different. At half time the score was Crimson Bears, 43, Falcons, 0. The mercy rule went into effect at the top of the third quarter, allowing the clock to continue to run.
Though it was senior night for JDHS, coaches substituted a number of junior varsity players through the end of the game.
The football season has ended for the Falcons, while the Crimson Bears go on the medium-schools playoffs. Quarterfinals are Friday and Saturday for the Southeast and Northern Lights conferences. Ketchikan plays North Pole on Saturday in the quarterfinals and Juneau has a bye.
In other high school sports, cross country championships were held over the weekend in Anchorage.
Thunder Mountain’s Maddie Hall came in third among Girls4A Varsity runners.
