Football championship: Double AA Blue Huskies win it

The Eel River Double AA Blue Huskies won the Six Rivers Youth Football Conference Championship with their 21-14 victory over the Del Norte Warriors in the title game at Humboldt State University back on Nov. 11. Eel River held the lead in the game throughout; a fourth quarter comeback by Del Norte made it a one touchdown game. A foiled onside kickoff in the final minutes was secured by the Huskies and the championship was decided. Del Norte earned a Single A Championship earlier in the day with their 27-0 win over the Eureka Red Loggers. The Triple AAA Championship was won by the McKinleyville team, a 22-6 winner over the Del Norte Warriors.
