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.

The new-look Hanks Knights took a trip to central to take on the grandaddy of all local high schools – El Paso High.
R.R. Jones Stadium played host to the week two contest between the Knights and the Tigers, and while the home team wasn’t victorious, the contest was yet another memorable one for the historic stadium.
