Story in Many Pics: Austin Blanks El Paso High 14-0, Panthers Claim the Claw

On a rainy Friday night, the borderland’s original rivalry game – The 87th Battle of the Claw – took place at historic R.R. Jones Stadium, overlooking the twinkling lights of El Paso.

As with previous editions, this one was a pitched battle between the two long-time rivals but as the scoreboard read ’00:00,’ it was the Austin Panthers who claimed the claw with a 14-0 win over the El Paso High Tigers.

Our very own Andres ‘Ace’ Acosta was there and brings you his view of the game in this ‘Story in Many Pics’
