BRAWLEY — It may have seemed like they were playing angry, and maybe they were, just a little, but the Brawley Wildcats are generally too self-possessed for that. Still the 56-0 beatdown they gave Indio last Friday felt like something of a statement.
The week before, the Wildcats had suffered through a live-by-inches, die-by-inches date with Steele Canyon. One of those real gut-pumpers. They had, had a 13-0 lead in the fourth. Had, had.
