Description

For a game that started with four fumbles, both Juneau-Douglas and North Pole High School showed plenty of of faith in their run game.

The Crimson Bears’ Donavin McCurley and Patriots’ CJ Fontana both amassed over 90-yards rushing and a touchdown on Saturday night.

However, it was Fontana’s Patriots who prevailed on a rainy September night at Adair-Kennedy Memorial Field, 22-16.
