CORONADO — In the first football game between the two schools in 64 years, the Brawley Union High School Wildcats dominated the Coronado High Islanders 34-7 here Thursday night.

History buffs will be interested in knowing Brawley won the 1957 game as well, but this year’s contest marked the only out-of-county game this season.
