BERNE—SA coach Eric Myers knew his team would be thin at spots against the number one ranked Jets in class A.
In a last ditch effort to steal some points and ward off some Jet opportunities, the Starfires made a few lineup changes but after a few key AC pins, the Starfires ended up losing a 46-23 decision at the hands of their county rivals in the Stardome on Thursday night.
One is down and one is yet to fall.
The former Dwayne's Sweeper Shop has been demolished and next up will be the onetime street department garage between the city pool and police station. Mayor John Schultz gave updates on both projects at Tuesday night's city council meeting.
