CALIPATRIA — Let’s start with something positive: The Axe Game trophy is a nifty piece of woodwork. It’s got honest-to-goodness craftsmanship written all over it. It’s rugged and it’s right.

Now that that’s out of the way, the fact that this year’s Holtville-Calipatria football matchup — won easily by the Vikings, 42-0 — was a dud can be freely acknowledged.
