The Huskies continued to roll at both the varsity and JV levels over the weekend, sweeping both games against Ferndale on Milk Can Night.
While the Fortuna varsity won 37-6, the school’s JVs got the better of a short-handed Ferndale team 38-8 for a third straight win.
The two Fortuna teams are a combined 7-1 this fall, including a 3-1 mark by the JVs, who haven’t lost since falling to University Prep by one point on opening night.
Ferndale dropped to 3-1 but will still be considered favorites to win the Little 4 when league play opens next week.
Elsewhere, the Eureka JVs got their second win of the season, beating Justin-Siena 48-6 and improving to 2-2.
While the Loggers have struggled at the varsity level this year, the JVs have been far more competitive and now have wins over Arcata and Justin-Siena.
The St. Bernard’s JVs also won over the weekend, getting the better of Arcata 40-6.
St. Bernard’s is now 2-1-1, while Arcata remains winless at 0-3, but the Tigers are showing improvement.
“We’re getting better every game,” Arcata head coach Matt Jioras said. “We’re young at every position, but I couldn’t be prouder of the guys.”
The McKinleyville JVs also are 0-3 after a 41-0 loss at University Prep on Friday night.
The Hoopa Warriors fared better and got their first win of the season in their home opener against Trinity.
The Warriors won 36-6 and are now 1-2 on the season.
The Del Norte Warriors, meanwhile, had a bye this past weekend and remain 1-1.
