EL CAJON — It was clear that, after the ignominy of going 0-10 in 2018, the El Cajon Valley High School football team wanted to show their fans a thing or two at their homecoming game against the Vincent Memorial Scots on Friday.

They wanted to win so badly that, after the Scots jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, the Braves risked it all on multiple dicey fourth-down conversion attempts deep in their own territory — each of which backfired spectacularly leading to a running clock to start the fourth quarter and an easy 35-6 victory for Vincent.
