Kodiak fumbles away victory
Kodiak’s offense has had trouble holding onto the pigskin through the first three weeks of the season. On Saturday, fumbles cost the Bears in a 14-13 loss to Thunder Mountain in Juneau.

Kodiak (2-2) had five fumbles on the night —two comi...

I can only hope to have better results in Week 4 — the midway point of the regular season. Monr...
