The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears should be considered proud runners-up for Alaska’s medium-schools football championship.
While the Bears lost to the Stars, it was a well-fought game, with Juneau ahead most of the time, and the two teams tied for much of the second half.
The game was played at Anchorage Football Stadium and carried in Juneau on cable television and KINY Radio.
In a cellphone call just after the game, head coach Rich Sjoross aptly described it as a game marked by constant momentum swings.
Juneau brings home a silver football trophy and another award that they should feel very good about: The Alaska School Activities Association gave the Crimson Bears the Sportsmanship Award.
