CALEXICO —The 2021 Battle of the Border between crosstown rivals Calexico and Vincent Memorial high schools was one of those games for which the phrase “instant classic” feels too cliché to be a compliment. A game with a win-expectancy chart like a sine wave, it came down, not just to the last seconds, but to the last inches as well.

In the end, the inches favored the Bulldogs, who edged the Scots 34-30 in one of the most entertaining football games of the season.
