Post 25 at Ketchikan
After blasting their way to the top of the National Division on an eight-game tear through the American Legion ranks, Juneau’s Post 25 (9-1, 37 points) has been bumped to second place in the Division by Chugiak Post 33 (10-4, 44 points). In an attempt to regain the top spot, Post 25 travels to Ketchikan this weekend for two league games at 3 p.m. Friday and noon Saturday.
American Legion standings are dictated by a points system where teams are awarded four points for a win, two points for a tie, one point for a loss and zero points for a forfeit.
