HALFWAY - Football and Labor Day seem to go hand in hand.
And in Washington County, that means a stroll in the park, too - Martin L. Snook Memorial Park, that is.
The Washington County Junior Football League ran its annual Labor Day schedule, using five games to open its 40th season.
"The most important goals of this league is to teach these kids the fundamentals, the sportsmanship and the fair play in order to prepare them for high school football," said League President Don Davis said. "I think that it is going to be an exciting season, because I think that all of the teams are on an even level. I don't really think that there are going to be any teams dominating like there was in the past."
The two-time defending league champion Williamsport Bears defeated the Hagerstown Packers 34-24 in a rematch of last year's league championship game.
