The junior varsity team dominated the hometown Vineyarders from start to finish Saturday, never trailing en route to a 44-24 victory, while the Boys & Girls Club travel team beat the Vineyard 38-6 to finish the season undefeated.
It was the second junior-varsity meeting between the two island schools this season, with Nantucket winning the first matchup 20-12 Sept 8.
