EL CENTRO — Throw the ball well; run the ball well; play suffocating defense, and win the special teams battle. It’s a recipe for winning football, and it’s exactly what Central Union High School did to Brawley in the 76th Bell Game at Cal Jones Field here on Friday.

The Spartans’ (8-2 overall, 5-0 in the Imperial Valley League) domination in all facets of the game resulted in a 41-7 victory over the Wildcats (7-3 overall, 4-1 in the IVL) and an outright IVL championship. More importantly, it likely guarantees Central a top-4 seed in the San Diego Section Division III playoffs, meaning a first-round bye.
