EL CENTRO — In a game marred by a Calexico running back Sebastian Avila suffering a compound leg fracture Friday night, the Southwest High School Eagles won a shootout over the Calexico Bulldogs by a score of 42-28.

After a dispiriting streak of five consecutive shutouts, the Bulldogs were able to find room to operate against the Eagles' defense, but their own backstop proved even more permeable.
