BRAWLEY — Shifting into high gear on offense and battening the hatches on defense, the Brawley Wildcats rode 29 unanswered points in an explosive second half to a cathartic, 43-7 victory over the visiting Indio High Rajahs, Thursday night at Warne Field.

Brawley wasn’t bad in the first half — they entered the intermission up 14-7 after all — but it was clear they were a little off their axis. Their scoring output was confined to two broken plays that allowed Wildcat rushers to turn runs up the gut into half-field scores.
