The Juneau-Douglas High School junior varsity team delivered another standout defensive performance in a 58-0 win over West Valley Friday.
The Crimson Bears (6-1) allowed just three first downs in the game and forced four turnovers.
"The defense had a a great nose for the ball," JDHS junior varsity coach Charles Fairless said. "They were swarming and gang-tackling."
Juneau recovered two fumbles and had two interceptions in the win, including Jesse West's 85-yard interception return for a touchdown.
Offensively for the Bears, the lopsided score allowed Juneau to get a number of different people to touch the ball.
Juneau had 13 different ball-carriers in the win.
"The offensive line fired off the ball and drove the West Valley line back," Fairless said. "They sustained their blocks and played 100-percent whistle to whistle."
Nico Saldivar led the Crimson Bears' rushers with 78 yards and two touchdowns. He also had an INT.
Quarterback Alex Fagerstrom had 59 rushing yards and two touchdowns to go with his 78 passing yards.
Phil Moser added 50 rushing yards and a score, Justin Fairless contributed 41 yards on the ground and a TD and Nate Wilson amassed 36 rushing yards and a score.
Tuavao Maake, Chris Toupin, Brandon Moser, Jake Nelson, Zach Owens and Matt Lahrbach also rushed in the win.
Colin Flynn returned a punt 60 yards for a touchdowns and had 123 return yards in all.
"We tried to spread it around and had 13 separate ball-carriers," Charles Fairless said. "We had a good time with it and a lot of kids got a lot of playing time."
JDHS finishes the season Saturday at home against Ketchikan.
