HOLTVILLE — While it wasn’t the blowout of a year ago, the Imperial High School football team again showed its superior size, speed and strength in a 28-0 victory over Holtville here on Friday in the second renewal of the Imperial Valley Classic rivalry.

Last August, the Tigers blew the Vikings off the field in a 46-0 shellacking, forcing Holtville into seven turnovers and dominating from start to finish. Friday, it was a scoreless game after the first quarter and only 6-0 at the half.
