HOLTVILLE — In 2017 the Holtville Vikings defeated the Calipatria Hornets in a tension-filled 27-20 bout to snatch back the coveted Axe after having fumbled it away the year prior.

In 2018, the Vikings defeated the Hornets (who it must be said were missing a couple of key players due to injury) in a 42-7 in a game as nearly devoid of tension is it is possible for one to be, to keep the Axe with the one that brung it, no questions asked.
